Saritin Rizzuto began a distinguished career in the non-profit sector over twenty years ago, when as a teen, she worked as a peer leader for the department of public health. Her goal was to go into communities with at –risk youth and educate them about violence prevention, substance abuse and teen pregnancy. Saritin found her path then, and has spent what seems like every waking  moment “doing for others”.

She has worked in a variety of settings that reflect her passion and commitment to improving the lives of others- as a teen health educator, an advocate for the disabled, in support of AIDS advocacy and combating domestic violence. Saritin’s work has been as tireless as it has been compassionate, working both out in the community and in-house in program administration. Her broad interest, knowledge and effectiveness have benefited local, regional and national organizations and all the people they serve

Even now, working at Metro Credit Union as a Community Relations Manager, Saritin takes on the traditional role of her job as only she can, finding the time to incorporate community organizing and building partnerships to benefit low income and emerging populations.

Saritin’s many accomplishments have her in high demand as a leader and champion of other causes. She is a board member of Casa Myrna, North Suffolk Mental Health, The East Boston Social Center, The Chelsea Chamber of Commerce, Bunker Hill Community College Adult Education Advisory Board. She’s a Past President of the Chelsea Rotary Club and her most recent effort to organize Latino businesses to join and have a voice in the Chelsea Chamber of Commerce is proving highly successful.
