Alex Rooke joined the Bridging Richmond staff in July 2014, preceded by volunteering her time with Bridging Richmond for several projects. As the network coordinator, Rooke provides data support, project management, facilitates meetings and manages office schedules to ensure the advancement of the regional attendance network.

Rooke brings to the team first-hand experience with Richmond students; she worked at Higher Achievement as a center aide and math and science teacher, in addition to mentoring students throughout the school year. 

While in these roles, she collaborated with community partners, school staff, parents and students to promote meaningful learning experiences for students. Rooke currently volunteers at Side By Side (formerly ROSMY) as a youth group facilitator, walking alongside LGBTQ youth on their life journeys.

Bridging Richmond is a cradle to career partnership anchored by VCU and supported by the greater Richmond region. The organization is hosted in the Division of Community Engagement as an aligned contribution to the partnership.
