Javier is recognized both nationally and internationally as a leader in developing effective strategies for youth and community engagement and mobilization. His experience and expertise come from more than 20 years of work with the Youth to Youth International Program. He believes that change for the better in our world, our country, our communities, and our schools isn’t just happening to young people, it’s happening through them. Javier specializes in helping teens and their adult allies develop strategies for relevant, effective and sustainable community impact. In 2003 he was awarded the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Developing Leaders in Reducing Substance Abuse Fellowship and is a graduate of the Ray Miller Institute for Change and Leadership.
Javier has written two books, a children’s book for fathers and daughters entitled “Look in My Mirror” and a book designed to help students, artists, activists, and entrepreneurs add process to their passion entitled “From This Moment On.” He also works behind the scenes as a technical consultant on film and TV projects. His love for spoken word poetry and stand-up comedy has given him the opportunity to perform on stages in 12 different countries and almost every state in the US.
When he’s not doing the work he loves, Javier is most likely at home playing board games with his family, reading a good book, or teaching himself how to play the piano.
Javier received his BA in Behavioral Studies from Capital University.
