Reliable, Resourceful, Caring

As a person who enjoys building meaningful relationships and making an impact in other people’s lives, Rey frequently helps the local and regional communities, by volunteering at youth camps, homeless shelters, and other nonprofit organizations such as YWAM (San Francisco), Sacred Heart Community Center, and Redwood Glen. Additionally, he travels to India every year to tutor children in a slum in New Delhi as well as an orphanage in Manipur. When he isn’t spending his time helping others, you will almost certainly find Rey spending time at home alone playing Minecraft or hanging out with his school friends. To him, finding a healthy work-life balance is essential; spending time away from work and having fun is fundamental to living a satisfying life and to discovering who he is.

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.
