Workforce and Family Programs

Jeanette Stevens officially joined AMTC in 2016 after having partnered with AMTC in a variety of capacities since 2006. Before joining AMTC as an associate, Stevens managed local and national programs from a variety of funding sources including public and private grants and contracts. She has supervised and coached staff throughout her career, developed and facilitated trainings, and presented locally and nationally. For ten years, Stevens held a senior leadership role at the Center for Self-Sufficiency and led programs and services that included a three-year, $1.5 million youthful offender workforce grant funded by the U.S Department of Labor and a multi-community healthy marriage partnership grant funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, totaling more than $15 million over nine years.

Through these work experiences, Stevens honed the skills that she brings to AMTC clients. She develops and manages policies, procedures, systems, contracts, program budgets, and grant-required applications and reports on behalf of AMTC clients. Stevens trains clients and their partners, conducts site visits, and provides technical assistance to ensure compliance with requirements. As needed, she also assists with marketing, outreach, and program design.

Additionally, Stevens uses her 20+ years of social service program development and management experience to coach AMTC clients in serving program participants in the areas of housing, pre-trial criminal justice, special-needs childcare training, adolescent pregnancy prevention, healthy relationship education, and workforce services.

Stevens received her bachelor’s degrees in social science and communications from Milwaukee’ Alverno College in Milwaukee, WI, and her masters of arts degree in public administration from DePaul University in Chicago, IL. She finished all coursework toward her Ph.D. in leadership studies from Marian University in Fond du Lac, WI. She has completed certification in several areas including adolescent pregnancy prevention and healthy relationships and marriage education curricula; how to address trauma-informed care, sexual assault, domestic violence and child maltreatment, and how to promote sustainability. She is also a trainer in performance measurement systems.
