Joel Juarez

Director of Advancement

Joel is a proud Stockton native and a product of the schools, organizations, and mentorship he received in his youth throughout San Joaquin County. He joined the United Way family after an exceptional career in education as both a teacher and school administrator, as well as working with other non-profits outside of California and most recently in the Bay Area. His work as Director of Advancement includes supporting The NEST (Nonprofit Enterprise Support Team) Operations, the Non-Profit Capacity Building Program and supporting our local non-profits’ work to disrupt poverty by creating equitable pathways to success and stability for all.

Joel is passionate about advancing equity and ensuring our most vulnerable populations have access to resources and information to create the change needed in communities. When time allows, he enjoys traveling and enjoying the great outdoors.
