06 Jun Alumni Spotlight
This week, hundreds of Boys & Girls Clubs of Carson teens will graduate high school. Today, we’re catching up with alumnus Marcos T., just a few years after he walked across the stage at Carson High!
Growing up in South Los Angeles, Marcos lived in neighborhoods where role models are few and the pressure to make poor choices is overwhelming.
As a junior at Carson High School, Marcos walked through the doors of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carson uncertain of his future career. He was warmly welcomed into a safe community where dedicated staff guided him in the right direction. Club staff introduced him to mentors and internship opportunities that helped to uncover his passion for energy.
Today, Marcos is completing his Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Southern California and was accepted into the Master’s program for Product Development Engineering. He hopes to become a leader in the energy industry and empower others by mentoring members in his community.
