Partnership for Children and Youth
President & CEO
Jennifer Peck has led Partnership for Children & Youth (PCY) since the organization’s founding in 2001.  During this time, she has grown PCY to be the leading California intermediary building access to high quality after-school and summer learning programs, increasing resources for Community Schools, and raising up social and emotional learning as a priority in California schools.  Jennifer has led the creation of the California Afterschool Advocacy Alliance, the California Summer Matters Campaign, the California Community Schools Network, and HousED which builds on-site learning supports for students living in public and affordable housing.  Jennifer and her team are experts in improving how our public systems serve the most vulnerable students, and through policy change and implementation support, have improved and increased educational opportunities and supports for millions of students in California.
In 2011, Jennifer served as Transition Team Director for State Superintendent Tom Torlakson and since then has served as a Senior Advisor to the Superintendent overseeing special projects on Common Core Standards implementation, social-emotional learning and school climate.  Prior to joining PCY, Jennifer served as an appointee of President Bill Clinton at the U.S. Department of Education, supporting implementation of priority initiatives including student loan reform, School-to-Work, and 21st Century Community Learning Centers.  She is the proud mother of Emilia, an 8th grader at the Julia Morgan School for Girls.
