ASP Counselor Team (2021-22)

The After-School Program Counselor Team consists of dedicated, passionate, fun individuals who strive to positively impact the lives of our Head-Royce students. The young people in this role are the backbone of our program and by far, our biggest asset. Supporting the social and emotional needs of our community is a top priority for our team as we look to continually build special bonds and relationships with our students.
