Jocelyn Hastings


Jocelyn Hastings hails from Massachusetts and relocated to Philadelphia over 10 years ago. Since living in Philly, she has nurtured a passion for social impact with hopes of empowering community members and young professionals in every industry or neighborhood to get involved.

Jocelyn is the Program Coordinator for ImpactED at the University of Pennsylvania. There, she manages evaluation capacity building programs to help organizations assess and strengthen their impact on the communities they serve by enhancing measurement and evaluation skills. Her work also involves coordinating numerous large scale data collection projects for the City of Philadelphia, as well as other public sector organizations.

Jocelyn is very passionate about civic engagement and nonprofit leadership in Philadelphia. She is a graduate of the board governance training program at the Fels Institute of Government and serves as a founding member and Vice President of the non profit organization, Project Emancipation Inc. She holds a B.A in Public Health and Spanish Language, Literature, and Linguistics from Temple University.

Fun fact, Jocelyn loves music and travel – she typically spends her free time listening to the latest album release or planning her next solo adventure. If you catch her on a good day, she’s hanging out on her balcony learning new songs on her saxophone.
