Each month, the Mission Economic Development Agency honors one of its dedicated volunteers—the people who are an integral part of MEDA’s ability to provide free services to low- and moderate-income Bay Area residents. Thanks to all of the selfless MEDA volunteers who choose Plaza Adelante as their second home.
Why did you decide to volunteer with MEDA?
I have been living in the Mission on and off since 1993 and really admire what MEDA does for the community.
What projects have you worked on as a volunteer?
I help in the free Basic Digital Literacy classes, work with clients one-on-one tutoring them and also help with administrative projects.
What do you like best about volunteering at MEDA?
The people: MEDA employees, as well as clients.
What have you learned from your volunteer experience?
Teaching someone how to use a mouse is harder than teaching them how to build a website!
Tell us something we may not know about you. Any interesting facts you’d like to share about your life?
I enjoy freighter travel and my life partner is a dog named Batmanuel.
