Meet Carlos. Carlos Daniel Jr. Valle is a 17 year old currently in his junior year (11th grade) at Early College Academy. In addition to his high school courses, Carlos is currently enrolled in college courses such as Anthropology 101, Speech 101, and Theatre.

Carlos is an exceptional youth who has volunteered at All Peoples Community Center as a math tutor for 4th and 5th graders in the “Tomorrow’s Leaders” After-School Program. Carlos serves as a great role model to the younger youth and hopes to obtain his Engineering degree in the upcoming years. Both of his parents are from Oaxaca, Mexico, and he credits his parents and brother to be a great influence in his life and his greatest motivation.

Community is also important to Carlos. He says that while gangs and drugs do have an impact on the community, he looks forward to being a positive force in the community by giving back and helping other youth. Carlos is a hands-on individual when it comes to learning and implementing ideas, and we look forward to continue watching his growth and success.
