Boards and Commissions Leadership Institute 2016
Tiffany G. Harrison was introduced to the Urban League of San Diego County through its Youth Leadership Team in 2001. She has been blessed to have been afforded many opportunities to serve in the roles of a volunteer, staff member, 2011 National Urban League Emerging Leader, 2012 National Urban League Summer Intern, former National Urban League Policy Institute Junior Researcher, and current Young Professional President for the local Urban League. Tiffany is also an assistant at Alliance San Diego, a local social justice organization that builds coalitions and empowers the community to make social change.
Outside of work, Tiffany also serves as the Fund Advisor for the California Fund for Youth Organizing, San Diego NAACP Youth Council Founder & Advisor, Region 6 Professional Development Chair for the National Society of Black Engineers, and a Commissioner for the City of San Diego Human Relations Commission.
Her passion for creating a sustainable pipeline for youth and young adults has driven her support and outreach within the movement. She, like Whitney M. Young, is, ‘Not anxious to be the loudest voice or the most popular. But I would like to think that at a crucial moment, I was an effective voice of the voiceless, an effective hope of the hopeless.’
