Participation and Programmes Officer


Lucie is a Participation and Programmes Officer at SYP. She supports a range of participation, project and inclusion work. She joined SYP at the start of 2024, having previously worked as a secondary school teacher and a charity sector programme coordinator in the US.

She studied Human Rights and the Social Sciences in her undergraduate Dual BA Programme between Columbia University and Sciences Po. Further education brought her to Scotland, where she completed her MSc Education Futures course at the University of Edinburgh, graduating with the first cohort of interdisciplinary students at the Edinburgh Futures Institute.

When she is not at work or volunteering with LGBT Youth Scotland, she can often be found strolling up Blackford Hill, reading in cafes, starting crafts she’ll never finish, or reminiscing about Trader Joe’s (the dark choc peanut butter cups will actually change your life!).
