Mentor Program Advisor
Jennifer Villaman joined to the Fulfillment Fund team in September 2014. As a Mentor Program Advisor, Jennifer is responsible for matching students with mentors, providing support and advisement to mentor/student teams, and conducting interviews and orientations with students, mentors and parents.
Before coming to the Fulfillment Fund, Jennifer worked as an Academic Coordinator at the I.am College Track non-profit in Boyle Heights (Roosevelt High School), where she supported the Academic Affairs Director in maintaining a well organized after-school tutoring program, supervised tutors and case managers, and was responsible for creating new relationships with Universities in order to recruit new volunteer tutors. Jennifer’s passion for supporting local underserved communities and at-risk youth has led her to be part of the non-profit sector in other organizations such as the N.A.L.E.O. Educational Fund, Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of LA, M.O.S.T.E., and served two years in AmeriCorps with City Year Los Angeles.
A native of Los Angeles, Jennifer received her bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of California Riverside. Her motivation and desire to continue serving local communities and youth stems from a long lasting relationship with the Fulfillment Fund as an alumna of the mentor program and current Alumni Board member. Jennifer is excited to be part of the Fulfillment Fund Mentor Program team and hopes to continue supporting communities, families and youth for years to come.
