Meet Our Community Educators
Ryan S. Thomas is the Community Education Program Manager at HDNBC. He and his team of educators deliver free community programs that empower people to foster healthy relationships and prevent abuse. A recovering middle school teacher, Ryan uses his 15 years of teaching experience to engage teens and adults with free education and prevention programming aimed at reducing teen dating abuse and domestic abuse in our community. To him, being able to be a part of someone’s story of positive change is a privilege. Ryan also loves cheese, his mama, his dog, and painting.
