FRANCISCO VALVERDE

COMMUNITY RESOURCE COUNSELOR

"This work is very important to me because there is a big gap for young men of color to get access to educational and mental health resources. With the help of IYT, I want to bridge that gap by empowering young men to reach their goals and accomplish new milestones. As a first-generation working professional, I aspire to give back to our communities of color with the necessary resources to succeed and instill generational impact."
