Miguel Almodovar, Bay Area Community Advocacy Coordinator

Miguel Almodovar is a former member of CYC who recently graduated with his Bachelor’s in Political Science from California State University East Bay. After his social worker recommended that he attend CYC’s 2010 Summer Leadership and Policy Conference, Miguel discovered his passion for social change and became involved with his local chapter of CYC. His involvement with CYC inspired his decision to major in Political Science, which has given him the necessary knowledge of government systems and institutional oppression to continue work as an advocate for under-served populations in his community. Miguel is a brother of his local chapter of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Incorporated, where he assists in organizing community service events at schools throughout the Bay Area. Miguel hosts the student run podcast, How to Change the World, which features interviews with change makers in the community.
