Nia Williams

Voices for Children in Nebraska is excited to welcome Nia Williams to the team as the new Youth & Family Engagement Coordinator. Nia came on board Sept. 20.

Nia brings 20 years of progressive experience working with at-risk and justice-involved youth to the role — challenging them to make more positive behavioral and academic choices.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in child protection and juvenile justice from Bellevue University and her master’s degree in criminal justice/criminology from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Nia specializes in youth advocacy in the areas of behavioral/cognitive skills development, education and academic counseling, family dynamics, violence prevention and vocation/employment.
