DC Action for Children Welcomes Ryllie Danylko as Policy Analyst

As Policy Analyst, Ryllie brings her background in community engagement, and social policy to support the development of child and youth focused policy, with a focus on out-of-school-time,  expanded learning and youth workforce.

Prior to joining DC Action, Ryllie assisted with workforce development programming at A Wider Circle, where she also provided job search assistance to residents across the DC-area experiencing poverty. She has also worked at DC Hunger Solutions, where she supported District residents in signing up for SNAP and resolving issues with their benefits.

Ryllie developed a passion for economic, racial, and social justice while working as a communications specialist for the public school district in Cleveland. There, she documented the district’s efforts to transform schools that had experienced decades of disinvestment in communities marred by a history of racist policy and administration.

Ryllie holds a B.A. in Journalism from John Carroll University. She is currently working toward completing her Master’s in Public Administration, with a social policy concentration, at American University.

Outside of work, Ryllie enjoys exploring various genres of dance through attending performances, taking classes, and teaching young dancers.
