2014 Bridging the Bay Conference Keynote Speaker: José-Luis Mejia

We're honored to announce José-Luis Mejia as our 2014 Keynote Speaker!

Born and raised in San Francisco and East Oakland to immigrants from El Salvador and Guatemala, José-Luis Mejia has ‘flipped the script’ from experiencing violence and the street economy to dedicating his life to creating positive change and opportunity in his local community and at the national level through direct service and policy. 

José-Luis has worked in youth development for the past eight years as a mentorship, life-skills, multi-media, and rites of passage facilitator. In youth and young adult policy for the past three years he works as a youth engagement strategist, qualitative researcher, advocate, trainer, and advisor. 

Now at age 26, José-Luis is the Young Adult Engagement Coordinator at Transitional Age Youth San Francisco (TAYSF), National Youth Ambassador at the Youth Leadership Institute (YLI), Community Advisory Panel (CAP) member at KQED, a student, and most of all a proud father.
