Director of Afterschool and Elementary Summer Programs

Memo Macalpin

Memo has been designing and operating youth and family programs for over twenty years and is excited to join HSH on a full-time basis. He grew up in the city of San Francisco, attending private grade school and high school. He has a master’s degree in organizational leadership from Regis University.

Memo remembers his time at private school fondly, especially his after school extracurriculars. From then on, he knew he wanted to impact the lives of children and their families by creating unique and innovative programming, just like the programs he’d experienced in school positively impacted him. He has designed and led youth and family programs for various private and public organizations. The City of Menlo Park, Digital Media Academy at Stanford University and Camp Crusader—a hybrid academic and recreation program with over sixty pieces of programming and sixty-five staff to coordinate—are several of his favorites. 
Additionally, Memo currently serves as an advisory board member for SXSW. He is a former advisory board member of Digital Media Academy and a former board of trustee for SLBEF, an education foundation. In his spare time, Memo loves to travel (he’s considers himself a fanatic), spend time at the beach, outdoor grilling and watch as many movies as he can—Star Wars and Good Will Hunting are two of his most-liked.
