Oliver Jimenez

Oliver Jimenez began his journey as a community volunteer at Montebello High School in ASB. He became inspired to expand his involvement into the community and in 2013, co-founded the Montebello Youth Leadership Club. More affectionately known as MYLC, the club educates and empowers youth through community service and civic engagement.

Oliver works diligently to get out the vote and inspires youth to register to vote. As an active MYLC member, he attends public forums and has face-to-face meetings with elected officials to raise concerns and educate them on issues in his city. Some of his most recent efforts have been involved in participating in Beautification Day, volunteering at the "Christmas at the Cannon" food and toy distribution, and coordinating a meeting to discuss public safety issues with the Mayor, Fire, and Police services.

With Oliver's leadership, MYLC continues to grow and increase their efforts to create a new generation of leaders.

"Oliver embodies the ideals of leadership, passion, devotion, and commitment to helping the youth of Montebello. Through the MYLC program, he has donated many hours of his time to volunteer in community events and serve as a role model for the youth. He really has made a positive impact in Montebello," says fellow MYLC member Jennifer Gutierrez.
