As a mentor, writer, reader, and explorer, Jared funnels the energy of his combined experiences – working in Minneapolis Public Schools AVID program, creating an enrichment program for homeless youth and families which he continues to run, board president of a South Minneapolis housing co-op – into his current efforts in youth work. “JXTA allows me to combine my passion for youth development and education in my role,” he says, “while also tapping into my affinity for social enterprise and innovation.”
