Alfredo joined the Workfaith volunteer family in 2020 and is now a Volunteer Ambassador. He has served in various volunteer roles: Practice Interviewer, Virtual Prayer Experience, Graduation Igniter, and so much more. He is a Family and Community Health Extension Agent for Prairie View A&M University’s Cooperative Extension Program. As an extension agent he serves the people of Houston, Texas and provides programing on Fatherhood/Parenting, Financial Literacy, and Character Development. These program areas allow him to work with families and youth through curricula such as, Active Parenting’s Teens in Action, Welcome to The Real World and The World Needs a Father. With more than 15 years of experience in this field, Mr. Alfredo has not only gained a wealth of knowledge but has gained a depth of love and compassion for his community. Mr. Alfredo believes Charles Spurgeon said it best, “the way to do a great deal is to keep on doing a little. The way to do nothing at all is to be continually resolving that you will do everything.” Together we build a resilient community.
Here’s what a Workfaith staff member had to say about Alfredo:
“I met former JSA participant Alfredo when he volunteered to distribute bottled water at WorkFaith after the February freeze. We chatted briefly about what he did professionally and that is when I learned that he sometimes taught students at Carl Wunsche Sr. High, a career academy high school. He mentioned that the school was in need of volunteer judges to help judge the students’ capstone projects and I was excited to be a part of it. Before the day was over, Alfredo connected me with the someone from the high school so that I could receive details about the volunteer judge opportunity and that was the beginning of the partnership. Because of Alfredo’s connections and heart of servitude, we have trained over 50 students at Wuensche High and we are currently working with them to partner in an even bigger way in the fall!”
