Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Alex moved to Long Beach for grad school in Anthropology. Today, he is involved in several social justice and grassroots non-profit organizations including the Filipino Migrant Center and the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns. Alex is also very involved with many ministries at his church Grace United Methodist Church (UMC) in Long Beach.
One of his passions is working with youth and children. Alex is the Director of the Soaring to Achieve Reaching to Succeed (STARTS) Arts and Tutoring Program which is housed out of Grace UMC and is part of Yes We Serve Inc.! The STARTS program serves over two dozen at-risk and low-income youth from Luther Burbank elementary school every weekday afternoon. The STARTS program provides youth with nutritious food and athletic activities in order to teach them about the importance of physical fitness and overall health. STARTS youth recieve one-on-one academic tutoring, arts and crafts activities, lessons in cultural awareness, music instruction, and an emphasis on charachter building and children's Bible lessons.
The STARTS Arts and Tutoring Program is truly a faith inspired and volunteer based program that needs your support! Please donate today, and make a difference in the lives of children here in Long Beach!
