Jian Bland

Director of Community Youth Services

I move people forward by supporting policies and programming that provide children and youth the opportunities to achieve mental and physical well-being, the highest levels of education, and self-sufficiency as adults.

Jian comes to New Brunswick Tomorrow from New Brunswick Education Foundation, where she has spent the last 2 years. There, she worked closely with New Brunswick Teachers and Administration, including the oversight of the Innovative Teacher Grant Fund, a locally-sourced grant program to support educator-led initiatives in the district. As the newest staff member, Jian looks forward to working with the NBT Board of Trustees, the New Brunswick Board of Education, and local community partners, in understanding and responding to the needs most affecting our city’s youth.
