Please welcome our newest team member - Sr. Director, Development - Julio Espinoza!
Julio is a professional in nonprofit management. He has worked for government agencies, political partisan organizations and chambers of commerce. Julio has experience working with grass-roots (members of the civil society, advocates, activists, private citizens) as well as the grass-tops (elected officials, business leaders, donors, journalists, influencers, and foreign dignitaries). Julio is passionate about empowering underserved communities by promoting capacity building programs. He is excited to work with the clients and stakeholders of Swift Youth Foundation as he sees a brighter future for raising Arizona. When not working you can find Julio hanging out with his dogs, working out, playing soccer, reading and watching documentaries. He is a nerd of policy and business and is eager to bring his skillset to the service of Swift Youth Foundation.
