Sam Arpino

Head of Talent and Culture (aka Head of Fun)

An organization is only as good as its staff, and DoSomething.org's culture shines because of the amazing people who work here. That's where our Head of Fun comes in. Sam Arpino is our Head of Fun, aka our Head of Talent and Culture. As a Brooklyn native who has seen the demise of organizations that overlook diversity, she believes varied lived experiences are what the best organizations are built upon. 


Sam recently stepped into the role after being the Sex, Violence, and Relationships Campaigns Lead at DoSomething.org. Intersectionality is at the heart of these issues, and Sam's commitment to valuing intersectionality made transitioning into the Head of Fun role an obvious next step.

Sam is a former Teach for America Corps Member and is the product of the New York public school system. She is a graduate of the University at Albany and CUNY Brooklyn College, and continues to connect with inner-city youth, specifically LGBTQ+ youth, letting them know that the world is truly within reach.
