Excerpt from JCYC Up Close Summer 2019 In preparation for JCYC’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2020, our organization is excited to profile some of our amazing alumni who have gone on to do great work! Our latest “Where Are They Now” feature is on JCYC alum and current staff member, Gina Gutierrez. Gina is a San Francisco native who grew up having few aspirations of earning a college degree. Neither of her parents attended college and she never thought a college education was financially feasible. Fortunately, while in high school Gina met a member of JCYC’s College Access Center and her life would be changed forever. With the help of JCYC, she would go on to successfully secure enough financial aid to afford college and was even a recipient of a JCYC College Access Program scholarship. Passionate about education and supporting youth from similar backgrounds, Gina developed an interest in helping low-income youth prepare for college. While attending San Francisco State University (SFSU), Gina’s career journey led her to take a position working within San Francisco high schools through JCYC’s San Francisco College Access Center (SFCAC). She eventually graduated from SFSU, receiving her BA in Psychology. Shortly after graduating, Gina accepted a full-time position with JCYC’s Educational Talent Search (ETS) as a High School Educational Advisor. After serving for several years as an Educational Advisor, Gina was promoted to the role of Associate Director. Today, Gina now supervises the Educational Advisors that once turned her life around. According to Gina, “If it wasn’t for JCYC, I probably would not have gone to college. I am so thankful for JCYC and happy that I can give back to my community!” Could you be the next “Where Are They Now” story, contact Tony Jenks at tjenks@jcyc.org! We will do our best to include your story in our lineup of quarterly alumni profile features! To download a complete version of JCYC Up Close Summer 2019, click here.
