Ariel Whitt


Ariel Whitt is the Education Specialist at the Akron Urban League.  She was born and raised in a small town just outside of Boston, Massachusetts, but officially chose to call Akron home in 2016. She attended The University of Akron to study Exercise Science and Applied Mathematics. She developed a passion and affinity for youth health and wellness and non-traditional education at a very young age, leading her to combine her passion and educational background here at the Akron Urban League.

Ariel has creatively combined her college background with her love for youth education to serve as the Education Specialist. In her role, she helps coordinate programming and planning for STEAM After School Academy, Summer Enrichment Day Camp, and the Akron Urban League’s Annual Scholarship Program.

Outside of work, Ariel enjoys snowboarding, traveling, volunteering, and most of all loves being a super mom to her two kids.
