Alex Martin

Willow Street Assistant Site Director
Alex grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas, where he spent his high school years debating across the country and developing a local tutoring and mentoring program. He is currently taking a leave of absence from Yale University, where he is pursuing a degree in Political Science and Economics, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the 2020 summer, he worked at New Haven Reads as a Yale President’s Public Service Fellow, splitting his time working in Development and working with students at Willow. After his undergraduate years, he hopes to find a career that combines his interests in law, public policy, and education. His favorite book is Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson.
