Will Bowman

Best Practices Facilitator

Will Bowman graduated from Hamline University, where he carries a B.A. in Criminal Justice. While at Hamline, Will participated in many youth partnership initiatives. While working with these youth partnerships, Will developed a passion for working with African-American youth and helping them develop the necessary life skills to become the best versions of themselves. Will began his career as a paralegal, he left the firm, realizing that this position did not feed his desire of working with youth and the rewarding feeling of watching their successes. Upon his departure from the private law firm, Mr. Bowman began working with Ramsey County Community Corrections where he would serve as the Transformative Services Coordinator; coordinating and facilitating cognitive restructuring programming for high risk clients; both in the community, as well as those in detention. Mr. Bowman's ability to communicate, build relationships, and encourage others has allowed him the opportunity to help guide program participants on their own roads to success and help those participants realize their own potential. Mr. Bowman brings his enthusiasm and unique skill set to Ujamaa Place, as our Training and Best Practices Manager, ensuring that we provide the best training for our staff, and the best evidence based programs for our Ujamaa men.
