Courtney Huynh is a senior program manager at Jobs for the Future. As a generalist in that role, she manages a variety of projects and initiatives across the organization, bringing a tailored and responsive approach to each.

Before coming to JFF, Courtney worked at Arizona State University and Indiana University. At both institutions, she helped advance university-wide efforts in entrepreneurship, international development, and interprofessional health care practice and education. She designed and implemented engaging learning experiences, managed grants and project teams, and built productive relationships with key stakeholders, partners, and sponsors.

Courtney’s early career work in international development afforded her the opportunity to travel internationally and work with many grassroots social impact organizations, including Play360, which trains communities on how to build educational playgrounds with locally-found and recycled materials, and Centro Mujeres, a longstanding women’s rights organization serving Mexico’s Baja California peninsula.

She says that she was drawn to JFF because the organization aligns workforce development needs with education, which “is essential to building equitable societies and communities that are prepared to respond to change and shock.”

Courtney has bachelor’s degrees in international studies and Spanish from Indiana University.

Courtney grew up in the Midwest and has lived in Phoenix, Arizona, for the past few years. “The opportunity to explore the state and this region of the country is a joy,” she says.
