I am Brian Castellanos and I am a proud member of LEAP for Education's Board of Directors. I joined the Board in May 2020 because I have a passion for innovation in education and a desire to assure equity and access to quality academic, college and career services for underserved youth.
I’m honored to be able to serve the organization that will serve so many students who, like myself at their age, need after-school programs that empower them to create and believe in, their own unique educational and career goals. With LEAP's expansion into Lynn in early 2020 with an English Learner program at Thurgood Marshall Middle School, I am grateful to be raising funds for a program that directly benefits my community of Lynn.
LEAP is excited to work with Brian, who has been integral to the expansion of our programs into Lynn at the Thurgood Marshall Middle School and in introducing LEAP to the Lynn community. With a background in public service, K-12 education and as a social worker supporting underserved adolescent youth Brian brings additional and welcomed expertise and energy to our Board”, stated Linda E. Saris, LEAP’s Founder, Executive Director, and Board member.
