Community Engagement Associate for Chester County
Dyneco Gibson is the community engagement associate for Chester County. Her passion for community activism began in Rochester, NY where she mentored youth and volunteered as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for children in foster care, worked in the disaster services department for the American Red Cross, and the Mobile Crisis Team where she assisted people who were having a mental health crisis.
Now a resident of Coatesville, Dyneco believes this work is important to her because she wants her teenage daughter to know that as a minority woman, her voice is important. And, for her to remember that African Americans and women did not always have the right to vote.
Dyneco is a lifetime member of the NAACP. She received her Associate’s degree from Monroe Community College in Human Services.
