Meet Tyler Stoltz – new Assistant Program Director at Chevy Chase

Tyler Stoltz

I graduated from Lock Haven University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management. While in school I was on the Sports Administration Society Board. We organized university wide events and fundraisers. My first job out of school was working for the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pa. Here, I held the title of Structured Sport Supervisor, organizing and overseeing all club and intramural sports offered through the recreation department. In my most recent position, I work at the Boys and Girls Club of Lancaster, Pa as the Program Coordinator. A few of my daily responsibilities included programming tournaments and competitions for our kids ages 6-18, coordinating sports leagues, (basketball, football, and soccer), and tasking our part time staff in our art room, computer lab, and homework club. 

In my free time I enjoy coaching youth basketball, hiking, kayaking, playing sports, cycling, and spending time with my friends and family. I am looking forward to the opportunity with Wonders at Chevy Chase, and can’t wait to meet all the families there!

Congratulation Ryan!

My name is Ryan Manalo and I will be joining Wonders at Horace Mann as the new Program Director. I am extremely excited to be joining your community and look forward to getting to know you and your children more. I have been part of the Wonders organization for the past two years as the Assistant Director at Wonders at Chevy Chase.

Prior to joining Wonders I worked in different non-profit organizations serving children and youth across Maryland and Baltimore City. My passion is working in the Out of School Time field providing unique opportunities for children to learn, grow, and play outside of the traditional classroom. I have enjoyed working at Wonders because of our mission to provide this to our children on a daily basis.  

I am looking forward to an incredible school year. John and I are eager to begin our work together planning new adventures for your children each day. I can’t wait to meet all of you soon. 

All the best,
