Diana Curtin wasn’t looking for a new job.
The red-crested dynamo was running Chop’s Teen Club and helping it realize its potential as a built-from-scratch haven where Santa Rosa kids can play, create, learn and prepare to do well in the grown-up world.
“I loved Chop’s,” said the strongly child-focused Curtin, an executive with Girl Scouts of Northern California before directing the teen club from 2009 until just last fall.
That’s when opportunity knocked. A man Curtin regards as a genius was retiring as founder of a Sonoma County-born approach to making schools safer and more effective by helping influential students find the courage to act when observing bullying and other hurtful behaviors, and in time to lift up the campus culture.
