Jodi L. Schwartz became LYRIC's executive director in 2005. She has more than 30 years of experience in nonprofit work, and an ardent commitment to social justice. During Ms. Schwartz's tenure at LYRIC, she developed San Francisco's first LGBTQQ youth-specific case management program, and facilitated the formation of the Community Partnership for LGBTQQ Youth -- an eight-agency continuum of services for LGBTQQ youth, ages 16-24. Additionally, Ms. Schwartz led the launch of capacity-building initiatives to promote LGBTQQ youth inclusion in San Francisco's behavioral health and workforce development systems in San Francisco's public schools and in youth organizations citywide. Before joining LYRIC, Ms. Schwartz was the managing director of Resource Development Associates — a consulting firm working to strengthen public and nonprofit efforts to promote social and economic justice for vulnerable populations. She was also the co-founder and executive director of the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice — a private, nonprofit criminal justice organization designed to reduce society's reliance on incarceration as a solution to social problems.
