President & CEO

Kim Webster is a social entrepreneur who uses her business acumen to develop innovative solutions to amass social capital to address social and economic challenges.  She is a dynamic, diverse and results-oriented entrepreneur with a strong track record in developing and implementing various community initiatives using corporate business strategies.

She believes that JTYPL will be a key influencer in the fight to end poverty and the deprivation of resources for women and youth. Partnering with individuals and corporations who have a shared value proposition around education, job training, job creation, and advocacy are needed to develop and implement a social movement to help those who are poor get out of poverty and eliminate the conditions that allow poverty to keep a stranglehold on communities. JTYPL is Ms. Webster's passion project as well as her way to give back to society and the world.

 

Kim is the Principal for Webster's Wealth Management Solutions and Managing Partner for MIK Media Group.  She is an AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) alumni and has a Masters of Business Administration in Finance, a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Management, and certifications in training, community development, and finance related fields.  She is the DC branch board president of the American Association of University of Women and a board member of the House of Ruth of Maryland.  She also spends her time as a volunteer lobbyist for the American Association of University of Women fighting for issues facing women – such as education, civil rights, reproduction rights, and economic security.
