Jose Cedanio joined SCC’s Economic Opportunity team as an Americorps Service Member in January. We have already benefited greatly from his skills and enthusiasm! In addition to being bilingual in English and Spanish, Jose brings with him years of experience working with teams, providing training and coaching, and building collaborative relationships. Jose splits his counseling and support time between participants in Financial Literacy, First Time Home Buyer, and First Source Jobs programs.
Already, Jose has helped staff organize, facilitate, and deliver impactful trainings and information sessions. He has also helped staff to pilot the first-ever dual-language Financial Literacy class, which was a very productive collaboration with the Early Head Start program in Somerville. Welcome Jose!
