Sara Matthew


Senior Policy Associate

As a senior policy associate at the Forum for Youth Investment, Sara helps maintain a variety of projects that work to build cross-agency partnerships and strengthen youth policies. She supports the management of the Children’s Cabinet Network and the policy agenda at the state and federal levels.

Hailing from central Florida, Sara gained federal policy experience while working at the White House Domestic Policy Council’s Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation. Prior to that, she served as assistant director of the University of Florida’s College Reach Out Program (UF-CROP), a state-funded initiative that aims to improve college access for underserved youth. Sara looks forward to combining her experiences at the local, state and federal levels with her interest in youth development.

Sara is a proud graduate of the University of Florida (Go Gators!) where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology.
