Jacob Kaye is a 2016 graduate of Baruch College with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Public Affairs and a minor in history. While in school, Jacob interned in the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on House Administration and witnessed an eternity of spirited debate centered mostly around parking spaces, styrofoam or paper, and the use of personal prounouns. Before attending Baruch, Jacob served with City Year New York, an AmeriCorps program that places corps members in low-income schools to serve as mentors and tutors to struggling students. Currently in his second year of service, Jacob is now a New York City Civic Corps member and is happy to be working with the NYCUDL as an Education Coordinator.
When he's not working, Jacob enjoys reading, watching movies, playing the guitar, and rooting for the Mets as they barrel towards defeat. After being asked to provide his favorite quote, Jacob googled for excerpts from John Steinbeck's East of Eden, his favorite book, and settled on, "And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good."
