Mamadou Ndiaye

Director
JFF

As director of JFF's Back on Track team, Mamadou Ndiaye helps design, document, codify, and scale Back on Track programs aimed at increasing the quality and quantity of pathways to postsecondary credential attainment and jobs for older youth who have left school without a credential or who have obtained a diploma or GED but are not "college ready.” His work spans districts, states, national youth-serving networks, intermediaries and community colleges—all identified as key scale sectors for Back on Track designs. Additionally, Mamadou is currently the lead staffer providing technical assistance and coaching in Opportunity Works, a JFF/Aspen Institute Social Innovation Fund (SIF) initiative supporting a group of community collaboratives that are implementing Back on Track programming for opportunity youth. He holds a bachelor's degree in management from Northeastern University and a master's degree from the University of Massachusetts–Boston.
