DeJa Robinson

I am beyond excited to be a part of the Compeer team! I graduated from Canisius College with a degree in Sociology which provided me with a great foundation to pursue what I love to do most which is help people, make changes and learn about the ever-changing world; all of my education and work experience has been based off those three actions. As the youth engagement coordinator, I will be working to support AmeriCorps members/interns who provide youth mentoring and assist in personnel related matters to build a great group of volunteers who will be working directly with the clients.


Compeer gives me the chance to work with awesome individuals with different backgrounds that I can gain so much knowledge from. Being involved with an organization that cares so much about the community and the people within it brings me so much pride. I am excited to influence others and be a part of the change along the way, and most importantly, I’m thrilled to see what the power of friendship can do!


A little about me: I have a love for travel and music. I am a proud dog mom to my little Guy, who’s a chihuahua mix of some sort. I spend a lot of time with my loved ones which recently includes a load of nieces and nephews whom I adore so much! Aside from spending time with friends and family I’m probably attempting to cook something I saw on Tasty Buzzfeed or spending too much time in Target.
