Parent Leader, West Philadelphia
Yolanda N. Lancaster mother of two children; one a college senior & the other is a tenth-grade charter student. My initial background was medical, but 13 years ago I became an owner of a family home daycare. Education is very important to me as it gives all a platform to speak and motivate ourselves in life. I always knew that being an involved parent was going to be the way I could speak for my children and others. In order to make a difference, I needed to part of the solution. Active in each of my children’s schools in many roles as a volunteer, events coordinator, vice president & president. I have learned so much over the years by being an active advocate for the children. I promise to continue to push for what is important to our current and future children.
