Ebony Yarbrough, MA

Ebony holds a master’s degree in sustainable international development from Brandeis University and a bachelor’s in Spanish from Florida A&M University. Her work and research have centered on collaborative grassroots community empowerment and self-reliance in Latin America and Africa. In her graduate work, she created a best practices documentation tool to support solidarity among communities exchanging knowledge of how they’ve achieved success in various aspects of community-led development. For much of her career, Ebony has been planning, executing, and facilitating various types of learning and community engagement experiences, both in the United States and abroad. Before entering more fully into global work, she dedicated herself for over a decade to improving the reach of the US national child nutrition programs, through advocacy from the local community level up to congressional engagement.
