Co-Founder & Director of Operations
Delvin Mack is a co-founder and a local neighborhood resident with over 20 years of experience working with youth and leading youth programs. As Director of Operations, Delvin reports to the ED and helps to manage the nonprofit’s finances and day-to-day operations, including the budget, payroll, and benefits. He handles the organization’s website, hardware, software, servers and other technology needs and supervises all aspects of the donor-engagement process–managing donor-management software, running donor reports, and helping to coordinate donor appeals. He has a BS in Computer Science and has worked in technology and network support in a nonprofit setting since 1991.
For most of the past 25 years, Delvin has worked as a Senior Case Manager with Asian-American youth in the juvenile justice system, advocating for them in court, working with their probation officers, finding them school placements, helping them obtain employment, and referring them to mental health services. A Chinese immigrant himself, Delvin understands the unique challenges facing immigrant youth and their families, including
the lack of support systems and the challenge of assimilation. He speaks Mandarin, Fukien, and Tagalog, which allow him not only to connect with youth but also their parents, who are often more comfortable speaking in their own language. He continues to keep a few youth on his caseload as Director of Operations.
