BIOGRAPHY

Jonathan has a profound interest in building an inclusive community and exemplifying change through youth.

Performing in small gigs and charity shows on the side, Jonathan has also been able to dance for the Warriors in the Warriors Junior Jam Squad and the Oakland Justin Bieber Purpose Tour.

The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (49ers SLI) provides multi-year, year-round academic support, STEM enrichment, skills training, and leadership opportunities to students in middle and high school. Students, who are with the program for six years from 7th through 12th grade, commit annually to 300+ hours of program learning time in addition to their typical school hours. By cultivating student mastery in STEM subjects and in key skill areas, the program prepares students for college and empowers them to pursue their passions; so that they may become the well-rounded leaders of the future. The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute is made possible by the strong partnership between Silicon Valley Education Foundation, 49ers Foundation, Chevron, and the Santa Clara Unified School District.
