Jose began his public service career while a foster youth in NYC. With almost two decades of public service experience, and two master degrees, Jose is nearing the end of his doctoral studies at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). Jose is an experienced nonprofit professional having held leadership positions in various organizations and associations. Additionally, for nearly 10 years he has instructed at four universities, most recently at FAU, teaching courses in criminal justice, public administration, leadership and communications.
Jose joins Boca Helping Hands as the Job Training Program Coordinator with a mission to make the world a better place, especially for those less fortunate. By providing a voice for those that are unable to advocate for themselves, he hopes to help build up the next generation through advocacy, activism, and education. In service to others and helping those served become more independent, he developed skills in bringing together diverse resources, enhancing learning and facilitating services and events that help fulfil unmet needs.
Jose is a lifelong learner that especially enjoys history and traditions. He loves cooking and sharing good times with others. You will rarely ever find him without a cup of coffee!
