Kevin Urzua

BLCI Middle School Specialist

Kevin is originally from Ensenada Baja California Mexico but immigrated with his family to Imperial Beach at a young age. His roots, interest in community building and passion for playing trombone led him to study Chicano/a studies and minoring in Music at San Diego State University. Kevin first realized that he wanted to work with youth when he was attending college and was able to work with refugee youth through a college preparatory program in El Cajon named YALLA.

“We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community… Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.” – Cesar Chavez
