Executive Director
Cicely Anderson

Cicely Anderson is the founder and Executive Director of Passion for Life. Cicely saw the need for an organization like Passion for Life after witnessing her own brother’s struggles to find a career path in the motorcycle industry, his biggest passion. After seeing his circuitous journey, she decided she wanted to help students understand and cultivate their passion from a young age.

Thus, in 2006, Passion for Life was born. Since its opening, Cicely has worked tirelessly to help at-risk youth find and cultivate their purpose. Cicely is a graduate of St. Augustine’s College.
