Trish Gonzales

“First and foremost, I’m a proud Southsider.  I learned at a very young age what community meant and how important it is to give back to the community. As a local San Antonian I’m proud of my city and proud of where I came from.  JOVEN is so much more to me than a non-profit organization, JOVEN is a leadership program for our youth, for our future leaders of our community.  I believe together we can make a difference in the lives of our next generation of leaders of America.”


Secretary of the Board

Efrain Torres

“JOVEN is apart of who I am.  This is my community.  I interned here at 19.  I saw the growth then and I see it now.  It’s an honor to serve these kids and help them grow into successful and responsible adults.”
