YEG Coordinator


Juanita is the Youth Economic Groups Cooperative Coordinator. She was born in Colombia and raised in Sullivan county NY. Went on to graduate from Rochester Institute of Technology with a major in Biology and minor in Italian. During her college and high school careers she was very actively involved in the community and maintained leadership roles in organizations that did the same, from litter clean up to hosting formal banquets for charity. Her experience volunteering and tutoring young people is what brought her to love the Youth Empowerment programs at Rural and Migrant Ministry. She loves working with the students in YEG and is looking forward to growing with them as a group for years to come.
