Jason Garcia first came through the doors of SoBro when he was 15 years old as a Summer Youth intern and returned in 2006 as a program assistant for an Out of School Time evening program. He is an experienced youth practitioner and human services provider who has dedicated more than 14 years to serving the South Bronx.
As someone who was raised in the South Bronx and was once homeless, Garcia’s passion for developing youth and adult opportunities to enhance the quality of life not only in the South Bronx but citywide became a life mission. In addition to managing more than 13 programs with a total funding of almost $3.5 million, he also sits on the Board of Trustees for the New York City Montessori Charter School.
Garcia has a bachelor’s degree in Human Services and is pursuing his master’s degree in human services from Boricua College.
