PBJ Educators

Jacqueline Manzo
Youth Violence Prevention Educator, SPAN
I was born in Boulder and raised in Longmont. I received my bachelor’s at The University of Colorado – Boulder, majoring in ethnic studies with a minor in education. The four years of my undergrad career were dedicated to studying and learning about race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and power in national and transnational contexts.
I am inspired by youth who take on leadership roles and fight for change to improve their communities and create a better future.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking the Chautauqua Trails, hanging out with friends/familia, and reading.
La Lucha Sigue.
