MENTORS AND BOARD MEMBERS
Day to day, mentors and volunteers are the heartbeat of The Fifth Corner. Additionally, we have an adult Board that cares for the oversight of the mission and finances of the 5th Corner, and a Student Leadership team that drives the Corner's culture, program and events.
Marisa Quiery joined the 5th Corner in May of 2021 as the Interim Director of the program. Marisa is excited to join the team and lead opportunities for teens to connect with each other through meaningful programming. Marisa graduated from the University of Michigan’s School of Social Work in December of 2018, where she focused on community organization and development. With that, Marisa has spent time working with teens on social justice, community engagement, diversity, and inclusion in southeast Michigan. Presently, Marisa also works as a patient navigator for adolescent and young adult oncology patients at the University of Michigan. Her area of interest when working with teens focuses on creating an inclusive environment where teens feel safe sharing their ideas, experiences, and interests. Outside of work, Marisa likes to spend time kayaking and hiking with her dogs, Jeter and Aries.
