Jose Luis Diaz


Systems Coordinator

Luis has been serving his community through sports and education for almost 10 years. A native of Oakland, California, Luis knows the struggle that minority students face in the educational system and has made it his mission to help as many of his students achieve their goals as he possibly could. Prior to working at Springboard Collaborative, Luis worked at Ascend middle school in Oakland where he served as their soccer program director, 8th-grade academic mentor, and special education para-educator. Luis is currently enrolled in the CFA program at Southern New Hampshire University to finish his BA and get his teaching credential. In his free time, he enjoys sports, going to the gym, spending time with his family playing video games, and the occasional BBQ. His favorite books growing up were the Harry Potter series, and A Hope in the Unseen.
