ACA is excited to announce the addition of Vincent Irving to our staff as the eastern region director. Vincent comes to ACA with experience at a national youth-serving organization. Vincent is an experienced youth development professional who has designed, built, and scaled programs to sustainable success. Vincent was introduced to the experience of camp in his youth and has since provided thousands of teens a similar experience through his programming in tobacco prevention and control. Over the past 13 years, Vincent has worked at the local and national level to reduce youth tobacco usage. He brings knowledge and proficiency in authentic relationship-building, positive youth development principles, program design and evaluation, as well as staff and volunteer management. He has successfully created and maintained partnerships that directly support specific organizational goals, such as policy creation and volunteer retention.

Vincent is a camper and staff alumnus of the Young Marines and the Envision EMI programs, both of which have been extremely influential throughout his career in youth development. He holds a Bachelor of Science in political science from Florida A&M University and a Master of Science in Youth Development Leadership from Clemson University. A native of Tallahassee, Florida, Vincent now lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with his wife Lisa and their loving dog Simba.

Vincent began in his new role at ACA on Monday, July 19. He will be learning about ACA’s systems and structures while camp professionals are delivering life-changing experiences this summer, but he looks forward to connecting with ACA members and volunteers both virtually and in person this fall.
