Kiauris Sosa

YouthBuild Youth Counselor

Kiauris Sosa originally started at the North Shore Community Development Coalition as The LISC AmeriCorp for two years, serving as the Family Stability Coordinator, where she was able to work with immigrant communities. This opportunity allowed her to create an impact on many lives; she helped countless families that were facing housing problems, job instability, and connected more than 200 individuals with resources that matched their needs. Then she got hired as the Youth and Young Outreach Specialist where she worked with Youth that were facing housing instability while supporting them with employment, financial literacy, health and wellbeing. Her passion for her job made her the person she is today.

As of November 2022, Kiauris transitioned to the Youth Counselor at YouthBuild North Shore where her main responsibilities is to provide youth with the support to be self- sufficient and successfully complete the program and reach their full potential. The Youth Counselor will conduct life coaching case management and ongoing counseling support, advocacy and guidance to support YouthBuild North Shore program constituents in their personal, legal, and social service needs. The Youth Counselor will be a mentor and advocate for the youth and assure that they are taking advantage of all that program and program partners have to offer.

Kiauris, has been a Point Neighborhood resident for over 15 years now. As an immigrant herself she understands the hardships among minorities. She translates many of her personal experiences to her line of work with young adults and because of that she uses those experiences for the betterment of those who need it the most.
