Alberto Martinez, Beacon Director

Alberto Martinez and was born and raised in the San Francisco Mission District, and graduated from San Diego State University with a BA in Criminal Justice. After beginning his work with Jamestown , he realized that his passion lies within the work he does with his community to provide youth with the skills, that will help them succeed in life. Alberto has been part of Jamestown since 2014, starting at James Lick Middle School as the After School Program Assistant. Since then, he has helped implement new programming at other sites across the Jamestown network, continuing to build connections and opportunities for youth in the community. He is excited to take the next step in his career as the Buena Vista Horace Mann Beacon Director because it will give him a great opportunity to not only help the youth, but also provide developmental tools for parents, to help support their children in their educational and emotional development.
