Justin Perkins

Lead Teacher

Justin has worked with chidlren (and their families) at the 14th Street Y since 2012. As Programs Director for New Country Day Camp, he loves to organize events and activities that are wild, silly, profound, and challenging. The kind of thing that makes you think while you move and move while you think. Justin is also a puppet artist who makes and performs in puppet shows all over New York (in places like Metropolitan Opera, Miller Theater, La MaMa, St. Anne’s Warehouse, & Dixon Place) and all over the world (in places like Paris, Honolulu, Tel Aviv, Lofoten, & Detroit).

His favorite part about working at the 14Y Youth Center is learning about all the ways kindergarteners are better at math than he is. He’s also really excited every day to see everyone’s extremely cool and fashionable masks!
