Jeremy Jerschina

Executive Director, New City Kids: Paterson

Jeremy is a consummate learner who loves a good challenge.

He returned to his native Hudson County where he led and nearly doubled the enrollment of New City Kids: Jersey City’s largest After School Center in four years. In 2015, after careful planning and community engagement, he and his family moved to Paterson, NJ to launch New City Kids there. He loves serving alongside and leading a passionate, gifted team of adults and teens focused on bringing holistic change to the community in which they live and work. He’s especially passionate about the daily moments of discovery that children and teenagers experience as a part of the New City Kids community.
