Juan Carlos Oropeza is a RISE AmeriCorps member serving with the statewide nonprofit, Al Éxito.
A graduate of North High School in Des Moines, Juan is currently pursuing a degree in Biology at Iowa State University.
Juan joined AmeriCorps in order to provide support to the organization that has given him many opportunities! He has benefited immensely from Al Exito, and he felt like there would be no better way to show his appreciation than by working for the organization.
One of Juan's upcoming goals is to have a successful fall semester at Iowa State. He hopes to learn by gaining new experiences and by meeting new people. He would like to make an impact by creating strong marketing pieces to extend the reach of the nonprofit to get resources to those in need.
