He also led fundraising efforts across foundations, donors, and corporate grants. Before City Year, Settlemayer started a charter school in Atlanta, where he gained deep experience managing a school rooted in a diverse community.

 

Settlemayer currently serves on the Board of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Silicon Valley and is the Board Chair at Charter School of Morgan Hill. He holds a Master of Science in Urban Educational Leadership and a Bachelor of Science in Education, Magna Cum Laude, from Georgia State University.
