Erik Estrada Joins Andrus Family Fund
The Andrus Family Fund welcomed Erik Estrada to its team this past week.
Erik will serve as Program Officer and he joins Andrus from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s New Jersey Health Initiatives (NJHI) in Camden New Jersey.
He has a long history of working with youth and in his most recent role at NJHI helped design, develop, and conduct capacity building programs for New Jersey organizations working at the intersection of health and social issues including for young men of color.
Erik's previous roles have given him a great way of understanding and seeking out groups working at the intersections of young people’s lived experience.
“Whether working directly with youth, or the organizations that support them, there is little I have found more rewarding (and more effective), than seeing the youth themselves have the opportunity to inform and take the lead in addressing the issues that impact them the most,” Estrada said.
