A new leader for Chester County Futures

Chester County Futures, a youth mentoring program, announced the appointment of Kimberly Hall as executive director today in a news release.

Hall brings more than 20 years experience in nonprofit and corporate management to the organization, most recently serving as president of the Chester County Historical Society. She has also served as the vice president of operations for the Chester County Chamber of Business and Industry and as the Keystone Innovation Zone manager for the Chester County Economic Development Council. She has a long history of involvement with youth development initiatives, including management and growth of the Chester County Chamber's Youth Leadership Program and overseeing and judging for the Historical Society's National History Day. She also sits on the board of the West Chester Area Education Foundation, the release said.

Chester County Futures is a poverty-prevention college access program that provides academic and mentoring services to hundreds of disadvantaged students, ages 11 to 17. The organization has raised more than $5.5 million in the last 15 years to support after-school programs in 13 Chester County schools. During that time, hundreds of Futures' students graduated on time from high school and 93 percent went on to college or trade school — four times the national average for poor and minority students.
