Who We Are


Amanda Elkin

Steps to Success Program Coordinator

With a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Oberlin College, Amanda began her career working as an environmental educator and youth counselor. After earning a master’s degree in Environmental Studies from Antioch University New England, she transitioned into publishing, working for Orion magazine and Harvard Business Press, before becoming a freelance editor. Amanda also worked in marketing and community outreach for Energy Fitness & Gymnastics, which her family co-owned for over a decade. She is a member of the Board of Directors for SPARK Kindness and a 2017 graduate of Leadership MetroWest.

After a few years of volunteering on our event planning committee, Amanda joined the Family Promise Metrowest team in 2015 as the coordinator of our new Steps to Success program. We are fortunate to have her unique professional experience as she inspires families to be creative in establishing their own career paths for the future.
