Senior College and Career Coordinator, Promesa Boyle Heights, Los Angeles
Alejandro Araujo believes every student has the potential to succeed. In his position as Senior College and Career Coordinator for Promesa Boyle Heights in Los Angeles, it’s his responsibility to ensure every child also feels that potential by preparing them to pursue higher education and supporting them in the transition from high school to college. Through Believe Los AngelesSM, Araujo has been able to maximize his impact on students. Via a grant from AT&T, Promesa Boyle Heights has been able to expand its college and career work by helping kids to access more of the resources that are available on campus to help them succeed as they transition to universities. With continued collaborations such as these, Araujo is hopeful we can close the gap between the Hollywood glitz and glamour that’s portrayed in movies, and the real-life struggles that are faced every day.
