YoPro Highlight: Shirley Plantin

As a part of the inaugural class of Yopros, Shirley Plantin continues to rise professionally. Currently, Shirley serves as the Director for the Miami-Dade County Community Relations Board (CRB). She founded U-turn Youth Consulting, an education and training firm specializing in urban youth conflict resolution focused on exposing the root causes of youth violence to governmental agencies, community-based organizations, law enforcement and churches.  In 2018, Shirley published her first book, Backstories of a New Reality: The Jaw Dropping Unmasking of Urban Youth Violence. Due to its success, an annual Saving Our Youth Symposium was launched.
Shirley collaborated with two fellow Yopros,  Vanessa Joseph and Santra Denis and hosts the VSS Hour, a weekly radio and Facebook live show highlighting Haitian-American excellence in South Florida.
