Sylvia Sedrak

Sylvia Sedrak brings more than 10 years of civil society work experience in both the United States and internationally. Upon graduating from the University of Wisconsin–Madison with a degree in international studies, she served for two years as an AmeriCorps VISTA, advocating for parent involvement at school and youth empowerment. She subsequently served as the senior program manager at a community leadership development nonprofit in Colorado.

Sedrak’s love for international and cross-cultural experiences has led her to work with the World Affairs Council, as an educator and trainer with Peace Corps Ethiopia, as a consultant with a chamber of commerce in Tunisia, and most recently, as an international relations officer at a national university in Nablus, Palestine. Currently, Sedrak is trying out the East Coast, pursuing a Master of Public Management at the University of Maryland, focusing on NGO/INGO management and leadership.
