Youth coordinator Andreanna Rivera-Pérez recognized


Toledo: Andreanna Rivera-Pérez has greatly influenced students throughout northwest Ohio by means of her commitment to them. Last week, she was the recipient of the Youth Empowerment Award, having been nominated by high school student, Sedrenai Harris.


This prestigious award was established in 2002 by the City of Toledo Board of Community Relations under the Jack Ford administration, in recognition of individuals or groups who have demonstrated leadership, initiative and dedication in working with and on behalf of youth.


Nominees must have made an outstanding contribution toward the advancement of youth. Consideration was also given to individuals who have excelled in a particular area of interest.


She has been employed by Adelante, Inc., in the capacity of Youth Programs Manager and Youth Program Coordinator, under the directorship of Sonia Troche. 


Ms. Rivera-Pérez’s skills were developed through her educational experience. She received a B.A. in Social Work and Psychology from the University of Findlay. Since 2005, Rivera-Perez has worked conscientiously to facilitate and develop programs for Jr. High and High school students and has maintained outreach with schools and other agencies.


Her involvement extends to many community initiatives including serving on the board of directors for the City of Toledo Youth Commission, Polly Fox Academy Advisory Board, chairing such events as The University of Toledo Latino Parent Summit, 2006 Hispanic Heritage Month Quinceañera Fashion Show, and 2007 Latino Teen Leadership Conference. She has volunteered time with such organizations as Big Brother’s Big Sisters of Hancock County and served as a literacy mentor for the Ohio Reads program.
