Interim Executive Director – Tiffini Jones
With over 15 years of experience in management and entertainment marketing, Tiffini brings to San Francisco Students Back on Track her outstanding and amazing abilities to get the job done.

She has handled at one time or another most if not every job function within SFSBOT, and in doing so has demonstrated that the knack for Non-profit management is natural for her and that her passion for education, youth and the San Francisco student community is real.
Aside from her organizational skills, Tiffini is beloved by students, volunteer tutors, staff, and parents alike for her positive energy, charisma that is infectious, and interest in their overall satisfaction with the program. Tiffini’s hobbies include traveling with her five year old son.
