Options for Learning names new chief program officer

Options for Learning is pleased to announce that after a months-long, statewide search, Tracy Lynch has been named as the new chief program officer (CPO) for Options for Learning effective April 1, 2022. Having joined Options for Learning more than 17 years ago, Lynch has most recently served as the director of the agency’s Enrichment Program, where, for nearly eight years, she has effectively managed before- and after-school programs for school-aged children throughout the San Gabriel Valley.

In this newly created position, Lynch will be responsible for overseeing all the agency’s programs, including seven center-based programs and the Child Care Services division. The goal of the CPO position is to bring greater cohesion and synergy and to foster greater collaboration across all the agency’s programs with the goal of increasing the impact of the services they provide to children, families, and child care providers.

“I am excited to continue to support our mission of preparing children and supporting families for life success while strategically uniting our programs to create efficiency and optimal success,” Lynch says. “I am committed to our mission and am optimistic for our agency’s future, and I know, as a team, we will move forward together. As Helen Keller so eloquently said, ‘Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.’”

Lynch holds a bachelor’s degree in business and marketing and a minor in child development from Cal State Fullerton.
