Jose is #BOSTONMAde
September 22, 2015
“I grew up in the Forest Hills section of Jamaica Plain, and nowadays I’m living in Egleston Square. I attended Boston Latin School before heading off to Williams College, and getting a Master’s in Education at UMass-Boston. I am an educator in the Boston Public Schools and the Founder/President of Boston Youth Wrestling.
All of my work as an educator, coach, and director of a sports-based youth development organization is focused on making a positive impact in my community by empowering the next generation. I believe our young people have tremendous potential to make an impact today, and not just in the future, if given the right skills, guidance, and mentorship. This summer we had six youth interns coaching with 150 new wrestlers across various sites, and none of our programming would have been possible without the leadership demonstrated by our interns. In this way, we’ll be grooming our next coaches-in-training right from the wrestlers that have participated in our program!”
