Ali Teesdale

Executive Director
Ali has been with BCYMP since 2020. She stepped into the Executive Director position in November 2021. Ali holds a M.A of Public Administration, B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders, B.S. in Psychology, and is a certified trained presenter in Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Ali has long been focused on helping people, as volunteering was encouraged by her parents growing up. Her history working and serving non-profits has given her an appreciation for the impact volunteer efforts can have within a community. Upon graduation, Ali took a strong interest in serving youth and their well-being which eventually led her to working with BCYMP. Ali is grateful to be a mom to two young kids and wife to Tony. Together they enjoy getting out and about in Brookings (with a coffee in hand), and frequently visit the Children's Musuem or Dakota Nature Park.
