Theodore Martinez: Youth In Action Program Director
Theo has worked with The Windsor Youth Services Bureau Program for the past 5 years. He has been an amazing team player and leader to not only the participants but program staff as well. He is very resilient when things don’t go as planned and is appreciated for his willingness (more than he’ll ever know) to adapt to situations and “curve balls”. This characteristic is highly admired and it’s wonderful that he role models this quality for our young people.
Theo has great customer service skills when it comes to speaking with parents and caseworkers. He always promptly returns their calls, follows up with e-mails in a timely manner and his professionalism and integrity has exceeded expectations.
Theo gets things done right the first time, requires little management and can think ahead for potential questions and problems that may arise. He strives on excellence when planning for high quality programming, he is able to plan ahead and discover new opportunities for youth while doing so in a timely manner.
Theo states that what enjoys most about his job is he loves that he gets to work with such a unique group of kids and leave everyday feeling as though he’s helped to make a difference. Theo’s favorite movie is Star Wars, his favorite food is mashed potatoes, favorite professional team is the New Orleans Saints and his hobbies are, reading, watching movies and traveling.
