Celebrating over 40 years of service to individuals, families, and communities in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Adrian has been with BACR for 8 years - as an after school coordinator in Oakland and as a manager in both middle and elementary schools. 

Adrian is another proud example of BACR's "home grown" management. He has been instrumental in supporting the development of the after school program field not only at BACR, but also within the Oakland Unified School District.  

Adrian embodies the following BACR's best practices: 

  • We persevere, are dependable and act with integrity.
  • We continually learn – stretching, growing and innovating.

Adrian has faced so many challenges in his communities and programs, you would think he would have run away from us already!   But he has remained consistent and motivated.    With every challenge, Adrian continuously looks at the lessons learned, systems in place, and how to improve our overall programs.  Adrian's commitment and goal for our programs is "continuous quality improvement".   Adrian is always willing to step up knowing that all opportunities and challenges will continue to make him a stronger leader!

  • Since I've been blessed with the chance to have a good education and many opportunities, I feel obligated to give back and to use the education and the experiences I've had to make an impact.

  • Seeing the kids' growth through the years, despite the odds being against a lot of them, for whatever reason, is what inspires me to stay here.

  • I am motivated by all the great people that work for BACR and the wonderful things they do. My great reward is knowing that I can help them in their work to support communities all over the Bay.

  • Helping other people is what inspires me to work here. Being able to change people's lives, by helping them understand their problems with alcohol, is a huge contribution to my inspiration here.

  • I know that, if I am able to overcome hard struggles in my life and do my best at achieving success, I can encourage the young people that I advocate to do their best as well.
