Hillary Salmons manages the oversight of the Providence After School Alliance (PASA) and its three strategies -- quality improvement, development of its after-school AfterZones, and building the capacity of the city's recreation centers. She also has primary responsibility for community engagement and fundraising efforts. In July 2003, Salmons joined the alliance that formed Providence's successful after-school programs, the Education Partnership, and subsequently launched the Rhode Island Scholars initiative in four school districts throughout the state.
Previously, Salmons worked with Health & Education Leadership for Providence (HELP), a coalition focused on improving the health and education of the children of Providence. While there, she worked to establish numerous systemic health and education initiatives. She holds a master's degree in public administration from the University of Oklahoma and a bachelor's degree from Harvard University.
