Angelica is the founder and Executive Program Director of Uprise Youth Club. She is a Los Angeles native, where she obtained her first job as a teen at a local recreation center. At that recreation center is where her devotion and future dream of working with youth began. Since then, Angelica has been coaching and mentoring youth in a variety of enrichment and sports programs, teaching youth living in low-income communities valuable life lessons. Angelica’s passion for youth is what compelled her to start Uprise Youth Club as well as volunteer her services to her community and communities like her’s, where services like these are needed the most. Her passion for helping kids learn and become better citizens is what fueled her efforts to start a coaching service where kids can have fun as they grow into successful adults.
