BUILDING FUTURES TEAM
CHRISTINA DECLUE Bio
Working for Building Futures has allowed Christina to continue to feed her passion of giving back to St. Louis youth in a unique and rewarding way. The meaningful exchange of lifelong skills taught to children in their formative years excites her because she knows that each child that participates in Building Futures programs leaves with a fresh outlook life, and the opportunity to succeed.
Christina is motivated by the knowledge that at the end of every day, the lessons she has taught each child give them the ability to change trajectory of their lives and enhance their relationships. And that is her true purpose.
