A Commitment to Excellence

Jasmine Bowles is an Atlanta native, and currently represents her hometown on the Clayton County Board of Education, Georgia’s 5th largest school district. 


After earning her B.A. from Emory in 2010, Jasmine joined Teach for America as a Miami-Dade corps member, received a M.S. in Education from the University of Miami, and an Ed Finance Certificate from Georgetown. Jasmine continued her career as an educator, advocate, and organizer in New Orleans and Atlanta. In 2016, Jasmine founded PROOF Inc, a community organization committed to intergenerational problem solving through Think Tanks, and helped charter the Young Democrats of Clayton County. Her range of experiences, from classrooms to community organizations, inspired her to run for public service.


Jasmine was elected to represent District 1 on the Clayton County Board of Education in 2018, unseating an incumbent and becoming the county’s youngest elected official. She considers it an honor to represent scholars, teachers, and families in her neighborhood, and to help govern the schools she graduated from. 


In addition to her local impact, Jasmine has coached hundreds of teachers, policy fellows, non-profit leaders, and public school board members across the country throughout her career. Currently, Jasmine serves as the Georgia State Director for Care in Action, where she helps advocate for women of color & domestic workers through advocacy, lobbying, and legislation.
