Project Description

I work extensively with The California Endowment (TCE), currently serving as the Evaluation and Learning Specialist in Boyle Heights for TCE’s expansive Building Healthy Communities Initiative. This work also includes TCE’s Sons and Brothers Initiative.

In addition, I have authored a series of case studies including one on the “Homegirl Café” and another on the “South Los Angeles Soccer Field.” Working together with TCE “Building Healthy Communities” and “Sons and Brothers” Initiatives, Dr. Todd Franke and I will co-author a series of case studies on efforts to create systems change at the three Building Healthy Communities sites throughout Southern California and to provide a learning opportunity and growth experience for young men of color throughout the state of California.

Additionally, in my role as the Evaluation and Learning Specialist, I work closely with community-based organization throughout Boyle Heights and South Los Angeles to build infrastructure, capacity and sustainability.
