My name is Jess Perry and I'm currently a Youth Development major in my last year at Rhode Island College.  This is my fifth year at RIC.  I studied Early Childhood Education/Special Education for the first three years until I made the switch to Youth Development.  I love working with children, especially those with special needs.  I am a lifeguard/swim instructor at my town pool and have instructed many young children in my six years there.

I know that the Youth Development track is the right path for me and I'm excited to see where it will take me after I have graduated from Rhode Island College.  I hope to be able to inspire and better the lives of both the children and families I will work with throughout my career.
