The Greater Keller Chamber of Commerce has announced the appointment of a local nonprofit executive to serve on its Board of Directors.
Jason Ray, CEO of Clayton Youth Enrichment Programs has committed to support the Chamber’s mission and values, by helping to grow its relationships and programs.
Clayton Youth Enrichment is the only Tarrant County nonprofit dedicated solely to providing after-school enrichment and childcare programs. Serving more than 7,000 children annually, Clayton’s programs are located in public and private schools in Crowley, Fort Worth, Keller, and Birdville ISDs.
Services are provided at the school where the child attends, to give parents a sense of comfort that their child is in a secure environment. During the summer months, programs provide full-day service to children. Clayton also offers care at community centers, and at One Safe Place, a Fort Worth agency devoted to preventing domestic violence and crime in Tarrant County’s neighborhoods, schools and homes.
Ray has served as CEO of Clayton Youth Enrichment since 2015. He is the immediate past president of the East Fort Worth Business Association, and just ended his service on the board of the East Lancaster Avenue Public Improvement District 20. He currently serves as Church Council Chair at First United Methodist Church of Arlington, Texas. Ray is a graduate of Texas Christian University and has a Master of Public Administration from the University of Texas at Arlington.
“In my role at Clayton, I’ve had the privilege of working with Keller’s school district officials and community leaders for many years,” said Ray. “I’m looking forward to helping support the Chamber’s mission to help Keller businesses succeed and thrive.”
