HARTFORD – Sonia Toledo of Hartford has been named Vice President of Youth Development for the YMCA of Greater Hartford. Toledo comes to Connecticut from New York City where for the past 17 years, she has coached, trained, and developed staff committed to providing quality early childhood and after-school programming. She is known for addressing and bridging the “achievement gap” through strategic partnerships with local school departments, civic leaders and businesses, while developing highly engaged volunteer leadership.

Toledo is a prodigy of the YMCA youth movement. As a young girl, she, along with her twin sister, Elizabeth, attended the Y’s teen programs; and by age 14, she was recognized as a Youth of the Year. It was during her first job, as a youth counselor for summer camp, that Sonia realized she had a natural affinity and talent for working with children. Youth Development has been her passion ever since. She continued to develop her skills in youth programming, management, and leadership during her 10 years as director of various after-school programs offered by the YMCA of Greater New York, Boys and Girls Clubs, and the Children’s Aid Society.

Toledo received her master’s in human services from Lincoln University in Oxford Pennsylvania in 1998. Over the years, she has broadened her focus to include the legislative side of youth development at national, state, and local levels. She has advocated and worked collaboratively in the development of national and state systems including accreditation systems, state regulatory standards, evaluation systems, and statewide professional credentialing.
