Resource Development Coordinator,
Trenice Ferguson is a passionate, determined, and rhythmic visionary that values inclusion, creativity, and awareness. In 2014, she graduated from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design where she received her Bachelor's in Fine Arts. Shortly after graduating she served in AmeriCorps for three years with College Possible and Public Allies, which sparked her commitment to advancing social and economic justice.
For the next five years she dedicated her career to art, social justice, social and emotional learning, and utilizing a coaching leadership style for personal and workforce development. Now with her direct service experience working or volunteering at nonprofit organizations such as PEARLS for Teen Girls, ArtWorks for Milwaukee, Boys and Girls Clubs, A.W.E, African American Youth Initiative, and Milwaukee Recreation under her belt, Trenice is continuing her educational journey through the Trinity Fellow Program at Marquette where she will be studying Public Service in the nonprofit management realm. For the next two years, Trenice will serve as a Trinity Fellow at Greater Milwaukee Committee as the Resource Development Coordinator.
Her long-term goal is to design, enhance, and/or build a nonprofit from the roots of Milwaukee. With a city that shines through culture, she believes that Milwaukee can utilize its diversity in spaces where youth voices matter, diversity and inclusion matters, social and emotional learning matters, mental health matters, and community matters.
