Yuliana Camarena

Founder and Manager of Program

"My name is Yuliana Camarena and I am the Early Education Manager for La Luz Center. One of the programs that I manage within my responsibilities is the El Verano Family Resource Center (FRC). As part of the FRC we have had the opportunity to create the "Supporting our Students" virtual tutoring program my role is to constantly evaluate the program and make changes and adjustments as needed. I also am one of the first points of contacts for partners and other agencies in being a part of the program or using this model in their district."
