George Barrett graduated from UNC in 2013. In the second semester of his senior year, he came to Northside as a service-learning volunteer and never turned back! He joined the Jackson Center the following fall as an Americorps Vista volunteer for Economic Development. George currently leads university-community partnerships and manages student relatons, with the hope that new Northside neighbors may enjoy the strong, compassionate community he has felt so privileged to enjoy. George thinks of himself as a true nerd who loves theatre, tennis, and discussing world issues with everyone.
