Marc Alexis is a graduate of Trinity College and holds a BA in Music. Having been through a youth development non-profit organization, Marc decided to apply for Public Allies as a way of giving back. Marc hopes that he will be able to impact lives the way his own was impacted by non-profit work. Marc’s Partner Organization is Urban Homesteading Assistance Board (UHAB). He works as a Tenant Engagement Specialist building Tenant Associations, teaching housing rights and aiding in various housing applications. He has learned a lot about housing in these months at his placement, but more importantly he has learned a lot about community.
