Program Director for Common Unity

Vileti is the Program Director for Common Unity, a trauma- informed care youth program offered at Exodus working with youth between the ages of 14 and 24. She is a Tongan- American social justice worker/educator & clinician dedicated to creating healing spaces for communities of color. She has an extensive background in youth advocacy/development, workshop facilitation and trauma healing work. To Vileti, the personal is political- and centering the lives of those on the margins is one of her commitments to social and racial justice. When Vileti isn’t working, you can find her replenishing her spirit by being in community with her tribe, reading lots of books, eating lots of delicious foods and having lots of pride to hail from Oakland, CA.
