Jasmine Evans is the Lead College Access Manager for Black College Success. Her mission is twofold: to inspire and empower students while ensuring that BCS students have the essential tools they need for success in college and their future careers.
Before joining LAPF in October 2021, Evans worked as an Outreach & Recruitment Specialist at Long Beach City College, where she worked closely with K-12 schools, students, parents, and community organizations to enhance student outreach, improve accessibility to college programs, and make student support services more effective.
Evans holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a specialization in Inequality and Diversity from California State University, Los Angeles. Currently, she is pursuing her M.Ed in Social-Emotional Learning, deepening her commitment to nurturing students’ overall growth and development.
In her leisure moments, Evans finds comfort and joy in the enchanting world of the Harry Potter series and treasures “Such a Fun Age” by Kiley Reid as a gem among her favorite books. Beyond her literary adventures, she is captivated by the lively atmosphere of live concerts and takes pleasure in indulging in the latest binge-worthy shows.
Evans’ dedication to education is deeply rooted in her belief that it is the foundation of positive change. She resonates with the wise words of Mary McLeod Bethune: “Believe in yourself, learn, and never stop wanting to build a better world.” These words reflect her unwavering commitment to LAPF’s mission of empowering students for a brighter and more promising future.”
