LEANA CARABALLO

Director of Programs and Fundraising

Leanna having been raised in Connecticut  by a teen mom experienced many trials and tribulations because she wasn’t exposed to or given the opportunities needed to be a successful wife, mother, citizen. As an adult Leanna created opportunities for herself with various non profit organizations such as the YMCA, and Boys and Girls Club of Indianapolis. Leana has a passion to help other low income, at risk youth to experience opportunities that inspire and cultivate success from within.  She is dedicated to helping others find their strengths from within. Leana started The Exist program over 11 years ago to match children and teens with programs and/or community partners that help them become who they are supposed to be despite their disparities.
