• Summer Organizer Spotlight: Franco

    Franco, a native of Florida, originally came to Denver with Teach for America. Working in a low-income community school district in greater Denver, Franco is aware of the challenges facing these communities and committed to seeing improvements continue.

    When he first got the email recruiting for the Summer Organizer program, Franco lost track of it in his inbox. But then five friends had forwarded him the same SO email – so he made the decision to apply. The program spoke to Franco’s belief that there is no better person to move America forward than President Obama. He’s proud to say that he’s “part of the select group of people that gets to say we helped re-elect President Obama.”

    While teaching and organizing is a busy job, there’s always time for a few hobbies. Franco’s favorite part of living in Colorado is skiing and snowboarding in the legendary Rocky Mountains during the winter. When not in the Rockies, Franco can be found supporting his beloved Manchester United of the English Premier League.
