A Conversation with Veda Ramsay-Stamps Executive Director of The Crenshaw YMCA

Veda Ramsay-Stamps stepped into her role as Executive Director of the Crenshaw Family YMCA with one goal in mind – to transform the organization by focusing her efforts around community development. Since taking the reins last year, Ramsay-Stamps has not only changed the branch’s culture, but overseen a major renovation. In the process, she has helped to elevate the community’s expectations for what is possible.

“My focus is transforming the space into a place where our kids feel welcomed and they feel like they can get lots of different types of services beyond just sports,” explained Ramsay-Stamps.

The USC alumna with a background in global education, also understands that sustainable funding sources and direct investments will help her achieve these goals.

Original interview July 2021.
