With over a decade of professional experience as an education advocate and non-profit leader in diverse environments, Mike Molina is deeply committed to catalyzing the potential of organizations committed to educational innovation in policy, curriculum, and partnerships. Having initially applied his Juris Doctorate to advocate and build political will for California state-wide investment in youth development and less reliance on youth incarceration, then as a national and tri-national (Canada, U.S., and Mexico) advocate for education, Mike went on to win a competitive fellowship to design a program of holistic family support for youth from his native New Orleans who were displaced to Atlanta as a result of Hurricane Katrina.  Later, after helping launch an independent charter school where he designed an innovative parent-teacher-community network model, he directed education programs for an organization serving U.N. designated refugees.

Mike most recently ran a wrap-around student support program for boys of color at an elite prep school, while teaching American Literature, African- American History, and Urban Studies.
