Meet the Afterschool Ambassador: Ellen Tyndell

Ellen Tyndell

Brick Township Board of Education – BEST Program


“I love working with our families. Most of our parents need our programs in order to work so they can provide for their families. I love being able to provide a safe and quality program for our children that they love and in turn their parents love as well because they feel at ease leaving their children with us knowing that they are safe and well cared for.”

Meet Ellen, the NJSACC Afterschool Ambassador for Ocean County:

Ellen graduated from the University of Connecticut with her BS in Human Development and Family Studies and is now the BEST Program Coordinator for Brick Township Public Schools. The BEST Program, short for Brick Extended School Time, is the district’s before and after school care program that offers a safe and engaging environment for the children of Brick during out-of-school time. She has also worked for the local YMCA for their summer camps and then as Program Director of School Age Child Care. Ellen loves working with her staff to make sure all of our kids always start and end their day the BEST way!

Ellen will be coordinating a training opportunity open to any afterschool provider in Ocean County.  Please contact her at if interested in more information or sharing resources about Afterschool in the Camden County Community.
