On January 2018, Juan Arcila, former Admissions Counselor at USF Sarasota-Manatee, joined UnidosNow team as a Manager of Education Initiatives. Since July 2016, Juan had been involved with UnidosNow and the Future Leaders Academy. He helped us with our Future Leaders Summer Academy, and he was also instrumental during the 2016 Giving Challenge and promoting the millennials involvement.
Juan holds a BA in Public Health and is now pursuing his Master’s Degree in Education. He is the perfect example of UnidosNow core mission: a first-generation Latino in the United States who comes from a low-income family and is the first one in his family to go to college.
Juan served on the Board of Directors from February to December 2017. Since then, UnidosNow has benefited from his knowledge, enthusiasm, commitment, and for three years he brought it to all our students and families. Now he’s on to his next step, but he’s still part of the UnidosNow team in a consultant basis.
