Adriel Rivera


Program Quality Coach

Adriel provides culturally responsive, relationship-based coaching that accelerates professional development, strengthens Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), improves youth program quality, and ultimately promotes positive outcomes for youth in the state of Washington.

Adriel has been working with youth for over a decade. During that time, I have worked at the YWCA in various positions, ending as a director of the school-age programs. I enjoy making a positive difference early on in someone’s life that can have life-altering impacts.

During my career, I have worked to better understand the impacts of systemic racism, and I plan to continue my learning as a coach for SOWA. I am excited to have more opportunities to really make a difference in the youth development community.
