After 25 years of developing collaborative ecosystems at the intersections of education, juvenile justice, out-of-school time, and family engagement, José spearheaded the national campaign for 25,000 Community Schools by 2025 to catalyze a nation of community-designed solutions that advance equitable outcomes for young people.
