Devin Smith

Operations Manager

Devin is the Operations Manager at Second Nature. Prior to joining Second Nature in October 2014, Devin served as an Americorps Ambassador of Mentoring at Boston Partners in Education and Science Club for Girls, and later a supervisor at Germaine Lawrence engaging youth in various community service and educational projects to explore media literacy, positive body image, STEM education, issues of gender, race/ethnicity and sexuality, and college preparation. She believes that youth can make meaningful and positive change in their communities when they are empowered with the skills and confidence to think critically and engage with others about complex social problems. She continues to be inspired by the commitment to equity and social justice she sees in youth and youth workers in the Boston area, and volunteers her time creating training and curriculum materials to promote understanding and dialogue around issues of diversity. Devin earned her B.A. in Global Studies from Lesley University, focusing on the impact globalization has had on human rights and transnational youth and feminist movements. While pursuing her degree, she completed internships with the Massachusetts National Organization for Women and the Harvard College Women’s Center, where she organized events to raise awareness about issues such as women’s health policy, Trans rights, and homelessness. Devin believes sustainability is a human rights issue, and is excited to be working at Second Nature with a team that is as passionate about this as she is.
