Jessica Valdez is currently a program supervisor for C5LA. Along with the entire team, she works to deliver successful programs to the C5LA Leaders. Her current focus is preparing for this summer's camping experience in Wyoming and the events leading up to it. Jessica has a long history and relationship with C5LA. She was a student participant in the program from 2006-2011, and has continued to be involved ever since. She has gone back to Wyoming three times in the last four years, and is very excited to return again this upcoming summer. She also has been very involved with the C5LA Alumni Association, which aims at providing opportunities for graduates of the program to stay connected to C5LA. In addition, she has worked as an intern in the office since March 2014. Jessica's passion is working with students and hopes to have a career where she can help them become successful adults. When she isn't working at C5LA, working at Stern MASS High School, or attending classes at UCLA, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and cheering on the Los Angeles Dodgers! Jessica also loves to travel and her goals are to visit Peru, The Bahamas, and Paris within the next five years!
