E004 HollyRod Foudnation - Rodney Peete

After Holly and Rodney’s eldest son, RJ, was diagnosed with autism, HollyRod’s mission expanded to provide resources to families affected by an autism diagnosis. One in 68 children are diagnosed with autism every year. 50% of these children have extreme difficulty learning how to speak, while 25% of them never will. HollyRod launched the RJ’s Place grant 

in 2014 to provide assistive technology to children’s hospitals and autism centers. As these children grow, they require vocational training and specialized job placement assistance to transition to mainstream life and gainful employment. Our RJ’s Place grants now support toddlers to young adults in over a dozen locations across the U.S. and Canada with a dozen more scheduled by 2018. 

The HollyRod foundation is dedicated to providing compassionate care to those living with autism and Parkinson’s disease.

We seek to fill an unmet need by providing compassionate care and services to underserved individuals and families that are burdened financially and emotionally by a diagnosis.

We strive to help individuals live the best life possible.


 E005 Quetzal Mama - Dr. Roxanne Ocampo

The mission of Quetzal Mama is to provide expert college admission coaching, programs, and tools to deserving students and their families for free. This has been the mission since we opened our dining room doors in fall 2010.

That’s the mission of Quetzal Mama since day one. We will not waver from our commitment to serve our most vulnerable students. And, we will not neglect to serve deserving students on their trajectory to college – simply because they cannot afford to do so and because no one in their family has the tools, resources, or knowledge.

E007 Encuentros Leadership - Juan Gaytan

The Encuentros Leadership Academy was created in response to the growing Latino male achievement gap in higher education. The overall purpose of the Academy is to significantly close the college achievement gap for Latino males. In California, the best and brightest Latino males accepted into the UC system as freshmen experience the highest dropout rate, at over 80%. The Academy was designed to increase access, improve retention, and increase baccalaureate completion for Latino males. The Academy's culturally-relevant curriculum teaches core competencies leading to improved self-esteem, self-worth, and personal confidence. Utilizing successful, experienced Latino male faculty, aspiring Latino male high school students are exposed to the daily challenges of college living.

The mission of the Leadership Academy is to prepare low-income Latino male students (grades 6-12) for successful admission to the college of their choice. The Leadership Academy promotes a strong community and personal value of giving back. Every Academy student is challenged to generate answers to the three Encuentros questions: Who Am I? Where Am I Going? How Will I Get There?
