Maari Weiss

Communications Coordinator, National Technical Assistance Center on Grandfamilies and Kinship Families

As Communications Coordinator for the National Technical Assistance Center on Grandfamilies and Kinship Families at Generations United, Maari creates resources and communications, both to engage with and support partners and to inform the media and the public. Prior to joining Generations United, Maari held jobs and internships that gave her the opportunity to engage in nonprofit and nonprofit-adjacent work. Most recently, she served as the research and communications assistant for a professor who led an institute at The George Washington University (GW). Maari received her BA in history (with a minor in economics) from George Mason University, and she earned a graduate certificate in nonprofit management from GW. Maari’s interest in Generations United’s work stems from a combination of her memories of her close relationships with her own grandparents and her commitment to social, racial, and economic justice and equity.
