Christian Risquez Recruitment And Admissions Manager
I am a first generation Venezuelan-American. Originally from Orange County, CA, went to MS/HS in Caracas, Venezuela and returned to the USA in 2002. Growing up in youth programs myself, I gained a passion for youth development after seeing its impact first hand. My 20 career began as a counselor in residential camps and progressively taking on more leadership roles. Most recently, I have managed multiple non profits such as Boys & Girls Clubs and Community Action Partnerships where the focus was to even the playing field in regards to opportunities, especially for vulnerable youth populations. I earned a certificate from the University of Phoenix in Human Resource Management and am a certified American Red Cross Instructor for CPR/AED/First Aid and Lifeguarding. Beyond my professional life, I enjoy being a dog dad, being an uncle to 4 boys, going to the beach or mountains, skiing and spending time with friends.
