Yesenia Ruiz

Program Planning Manager


Hola Lobos, I am currently El Centro’s Program Planning Manager, where I oversee the departments Marketing area that includes social media, web development, and communications. In addition, I am the co-director of Transformar Mentorship Program which includes an amazing summer study abroad. Finally, I also oversee La Cultura Cura Special Programming which includes our signature program of Día de los Muertos! I have a Master of Arts in Language, Literacy, and Sociocultural Studies, with a concentration in Education Thought and Sociocultural Studies. I also have the Race and Social Justice Certification, with the hopes of strengthening my skills in dealing with social justice issues and the empowerment of students of color. It is an honor to be part of El Centro de La Raza team.
