Jay Banfield


Jay Banfield is a social entrepreneur with experience in the private, public, nonprofit, and educational sectors. He currently serves as the Chief Officer of Economic Mobility at All Home where he leads the development of regional policies and initiatives to provide economic stability, drive economic mobility, and ultimately create wealth for those with extremely low incomes and multiple barriers to employment in the Bay Area.

Prior to joining All Home, Jay spent 12 years at the nationally recognized youth and workforce development program Year Up, leading its expansion to the West Coast and serving as its Chief Officer of Innovation & Scale. As a member of the National Senior Leadership team, he helped oversee expansion to 25 cities and growth to a $170 million organization. Jay graduated with honors from Stanford University with a degree in psychology and earned a Master of Public Policy from the University of California at Berkeley. His research in self-efficacy, a concept which has led to the growth mindset framework, has appeared in the Journal of Sport & Exercise Psychology.

He began his career at Oracle Corporation before moving into politics and public service. Since then, Jay has worked on local, state and national political campaigns and has served in both the legislative and executive branches of government. He served as the Chief Assistant Treasurer for the City and County of San Francisco and the Assistant General Manager, Business Services for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

Leveraging his psychology and athletic background, Jay was named the Mental Performance Coach for the Orleans Firebirds of the Cape Cod Baseball League, where he has coached for four seasons. Jay also works with professional and collegiate athletes, as well as collegiate baseball programs, on mental performance and team dynamics.

An active community member, he has served on the boards of Stanford Athletics Buck/Cardinal Club, Workday Foundation, San Francisco University High School, Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation, Court Appointed Special Advocates, San Francisco Friends School, and San Francisco Little League. Jay lives in San Francisco with his wife, Kate, in a house that bustles much less frequently now that they have three adult children.
