Kendra Carr

Chief Program Officer

Kendra is excited to join the Girls Leadership team, after almost a decade of work as an administrator at Holy Names High School, an all-girls school in Oakland. She is deeply committed to girls programming that addresses the needs of all girls, especially those at the margins of society. Love, community, humility, equity, and a commitment to liberating action are the values that guide her work with youth. For the last 15 years, Kendra has served in various roles within the field of education and youth development, and has worked with elementary, middle, high school, and community college students and their families.

Kendra received a B.S. in Political Science with a minor in Ethnic Studies from Santa Clara University and a M.A. in Education with a concentration in Equity and Social Justice from San Francisco State University. She is currently working towards a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Saint Mary’s College of CA. While she loves her work, the greatest source of joy in her life is her beautiful family – her husband and two sons.
