Kira Coelho

Salt Lake County Youth Services
Afterschool Program Supervisor
Kira Coelho hails from Tulare, California. As a little girl with big dreams, Kira began dancing her way into the hearts of many with her superpower: youth advocacy. Fast forward to this side of Y2K, and Kira suited herself up with a bachelor's degree in Recreation Administration, focusing on Youth and Community Services. She works tirelessly to take afterschool dance and art programming for secondary aged youth to the next level. Since superheroes never sleep, she recently completed her master’s degree in community leadership, work with the Utah Afterschool Network as an OST Specialist, and is now embarking on a new chapter with Salt Lake County Youth Services. Kira is a fierce advocate of afterschool and summer programs and is not famous (yet) but has worked her way up in several circles so that now when Kira speaks, people listen. It's only a matter of time before Kira makes history as the greatest superhero of all time, but for now, we're just lucky to have this dancing advocate working in afterschool.
