Vontia Mitchell
Juvenile Diversion and Youth Master Plan Specialist, City of Little Rock


My name is Vontia Mitchell and I am very thankful that “A Measure of Success: Career Crash Course” is of interest to you all in Memphis, Tennessee. In May of this year I began my internship with the City of Little Rock and was asked to stay on as an employee and I currently serve as the Juvenile Diversion and Youth Master Plan Specialist for the City of Little Rock Department of Community Programs. In May of 2016 I will be completing my Master of Public Administration from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro and back in May of 2014 I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Spanish.

I am originally from North Little Rock, Arkansas and graduated from high school from North Little Rock High School-West Campus. I began community service involvement at an early age and was very focused on dealing with youth in particular. Growing up I participated in after school programs where I tutored other students as well as became a member of Girl Scouts USA. As a young adult in high school I worked with preschool and kindergarten students through the NLR STARS Peer Leadership program. This program allowed me to travel across the city to work with youth on academic and lifestyle skills.

Throughout my undergraduate career I was involved with many volunteer organizations like Circle K International and Delta Epsilon Iota. I served as the president of Golden Key International Honour Society at Arkansas State and later became the Graduate Advisor. Ultimately I became a member of the Exceptional Talent committee which reviews student requests for undergraduate enrollment or re-enrollment.

“A Measure of Success: Career Crash Course” was one of my biggest accomplishments this summer and I am confident that youth everywhere would benefit from these courses. I hope that I and my department at the City of Little Rock can be of service to you all.
