High School Outreach
Citlaly’s portfolio consist of being the High School Outreach Coordinator for the AB540 and Undocumented Student Center. Citlaly attended Berkeley High School and was part of the Dreamer’s club, AVID and other various programs that have shaped her academically and enriched her high school experience. She also received a tremendous amount of support from Angela Price, her college advisor at high school. All of these resources combined with her own determination, have allowed Citlaly to overcome the academic achievement gap in her community, the differentiated treatment she received in her AP/IB classrooms in contrast to her more privileged peers, and the financial struggles of many first- generation, low-income, DACAmented students. Despite her circumstances, Citlaly has found empowerment in her identity as a DACAmented Mexicana and desires to encourage fellow high school students to find their own empowerment and determination to reach higher education. Through her position as high school outreach coordinator, she ultimately aims to use her own experience as an outlet to connect and empathize with fellow peers regardless of their citizenship status.

Manolo’s portfolio consist of being the Transfer Outreach Coordinator at the AB540 and Undocumented Student Center. Although Manolo was not a transfer student himself, he has worked with transfer students at outreach events and workshops, and learned from their experiences. Manolo understands very well the difficulties of navigating higher education as an Undocumented student, and why community college can be the first step towards reaching a four-year institution. He aspires to help as many transfer students as he can by providing the necessary resources and passing on skills for academic success. Manolo knows the value of having a safe space to ask all sorts of questions. For all these reasons, he wants to spread the many resources and opportunities the AB540 and Undocumented Student Center provides to students so they can thrive at UC Davis and beyond. If you have any questions, feel free to reach Manolo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together, Citlaly and Manolo, offer presentations about financial aid, AB540/Undocumented updates, journey to higher education, as well as workshops on the California DREAM ACT. Other events include scholarship jams for AB540/Undocumented/DACAmented folks, student panel presentations and much more!
