Former Highland Street Americorps ambassador of mentoring


Claire Takhar served Enroot as the Highland Street AmeriCorps Ambassador of Mentoring from the fall of 2016 to June 2017. Claire built Enroot's capacity to serve students by helping to recruit and support volunteer mentors. Previously, she had spent two years as an EFL Teacher in the Republic of Georgia, Vietnam, and Korea.

Claire is planning to puruse a Master's in Education from Harvard's Graduate School of Education while continuing to dedicate her time to Enroot's newest students in the Explore cohort.

Claire graduated magna cum laude from Colorado State University with a degree in English Literature. While she was in school, she worked with a number of nonprofits, including a year of service with City Year Detroit. A mountain girl at heart, she loves hiking, but you can also find her reading, playing guitar, and cheering loudly for the Denver Broncos.
