In January of last year, we re-launched Northside UP as a program administered by CenterState CEO’s Economic Inclusion team (link to blog post), under the guidance of a community-led steering committee and with staff support from Stasya Erickson and Jonathan Link Logan. We’re grateful for the team we’d established in our first year – a committee of dedicated, passionate individuals working collaboratively towards outcome-oriented solutions, rallying around a shared vision for our neighborhood and helping advise projects. We’d like to spend some time highlighting the members that have been part of this journey with us, as well as sharing new faces as they join us over the next few months.

The coffee break at our latest Economic Inclusion staff meeting led us to Brewed Awakening for a quick pick-me-up. Who needs gloves when you have a toasty beverage?
Dan started working for us 4.5 years ago as an AmeriCorps VISTA, Program Assistant for Business Development, fresh out of Syracuse University. Since then, he’s grown to lead our business development efforts through Up Start and became Deputy Director under Dominic Robinson. He’s contributed great amounts of energy, laughter, and support to all of us at Economic Inclusion, and we suspect for many in the community at large.
We’re going to miss his playfulness, his dedication to the cause, and his willingness to happily go above and beyond for all of our programs. Join us in wishing him the best of luck as he makes the leap to Detroit!
Thank you, Nadia Ahishakiye, for taking over our Instagram this week and showing us what it’s like to be a seventeen year old living on the Northside! To view all of her photos, visit our Instagram or Facebook.

“My name is Ahishakiye Nadia. I’m seventeen years old. I’m a senior and currently attending PSLA@Fowler. I’m Burundian, but was born in the country Tanzania. I moved to the Northside in 2012 from Idaho. I really love the Northside. It’s a very beautiful place with many beautiful and unique cultures. I love learning about the different cultures and people around the world, many of which live on the Northside.”
