Kelly Steinhagen

Youth Programs & Education Coordinator


Kelly Steinhagen joined EqualityMaine in the summer of 2023 as the new Youth Programs & Education Coordinator. In this role, Kelly will oversee the New Leaders Project by formalizing EqualityMaine’s current summer program and extending youth leadership throughout the year. In addition, she will conduct educational trainings to school and youth-related organizations.

Before joining EQME, Kelly was a middle school teacher for four years and an afterschool enrichment director for five years. While teaching, she implemented her school’s first GSTA club. She absolutely loves her time spent with youth - especially middle school aged people - and is devoted to helping young people build resiliency skills and become engaged members of their communities.

Kelly holds a B.A. in English and a B.S. in Education from the University of Maine at Farmington as well as an M. ED from Lesley University. When not working, you can find Kelly enjoying her time outside exploring new trails, reading or taking care of two unique cats with her partner. 


Why we list our pronouns

Names aren’t the only way we refer to people. We share our gender pronouns and encourage you to do the same. Gender pronouns are the way you like to be referred to: she, her, hers; they, them, theirs; he, him, his; or something else. We share these because we do not want to assume another person’s gender.
