Dear Next Generation Scholars Community,
On behalf of the Next Generation Scholars’ Board of Directors and staff, I’m pleased to announce that Janeen Mendoza Cruz will join us on September 30, 2019, as our new Executive Director.
In many ways, Janeen’s journey to Next Generation Scholars began growing up on a farm labor camp in California’s Central Valley. She is the proud daughter of Mexican immigrants who knows first-hand the struggle of immigrant children and their families. Navigating the challenges of under-resourced schools, institutionalized racism, and those who doubted her, she earned a dual degree in Economics and Latin American Studies from UC San Diego.
Next Generation Scholars believes equal access to higher education is the key to making positive change within our community. Our mission is to level the playing field by providing dedicated underserved students with all the advantages available to those of privilege.
