Alan Mclain BIO
Although I am was recently hired at the beginning of this school year, I have been a Sandtown resident and active
New Song church member since 2011. During these few years I have shared my life, my home, and my time
informally with young men in the community and been blessed to have them reciprocate fully. My role at New
Song as the Director of the College and Career program is just a further step in this direction for me. Beyond being
a resource and a friend, it is my job to lead New Song graduates (high school age) to successful college and career
opportunities while instilling in them the biblical values of character and community that have changed my life.
My undergraduate studies were in Urban Sociology and French yet nothing has taught me more about community
development and Jesus than being a neighbor in this wonderful community. I am currently also a graduate student
of Nonprofit Management at Eastern University.
