The Broad Residency 2016-2018


Overcoming the challenges of being an English Learner and being first in my family to go to college allowed me to obtain a college education and shape my family's future for the better. However, a college education and the opportunities it affords are not yet a reality for many Latinos and other underserved populations in the United States. I am committed to using my business experience to ensure these families have access to high quality schools, so that they too may realize the American Dream. Building my leadership capacity with the support of The Broad Residency will prepare me to become an effective change agent to meaningfully transform our education system.

Alma Rico served as Chief Operating Officer for Voices College-Bound Language Academies during The Broad Residency.
