Jah-ni Blanton-Dale
Program Manager

Manages the day-to-day operations of our programs

Jah-Ni is thrilled to be on the Connect Center team as the Program Manager! 

She was born and raised in Albany, NY and attended Canisius College where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Human Services and Communications. She then went on to obtain a Master's degree in Higher Education at the University at Albany. 

Through her previous work experience in non-profit community organizations and youth programs, Jah-Ni developed a passion to help create pathways for young people to succeed. She has worked with youth ranging from infants to young adults and while the programs may be different, she shows up with the same motivation and lively energy to give support. She enjoys being a part of the Connect Center to help the youth in the community learn, grow and explore! 

In her free time, Jah-Ni enjoys trying new food and spending time with her dog, Tyson.
