Jessica Valdez is currently the program director for C5LA. She oversees the successful delivery of programs to the C5LA Leaders, and works closely with the entire team. Her current focus is preparing for this summer's camping experience in Wyoming and selecting the Class of 2023. 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. As a camper, C.I.T., counselor, program supervisor and now program director, she has gone to Camp Paintrock in Wyoming 8 different summers. She also has been very involved with the C5LA Alumni Board & Association, which aims at providing opportunities for graduates of the program to stay connected to C5LA. She is very excited for the newest C5LA initiative, the C.A.P.S. Program. She hopes C5LA can continue to offer support/resources to our leaders once they are in college. When she isn't attending the birthday parties and sporting events of the C5LA leaders, she enjoys spending time with her family. Some of Jessica's favorite things are Beyonce, The Los Angeles Dodgers, and traveling.
