A film by HooplaHa.

This video highlights the inspirational life and work of Cesar Cruz, the first male Mexican immigrant in Harvard University's Doctorate in Education Leadership Development. He is an educator and gang violence prevention advocate and the Dean of students at a large high school where he inspires his students and helps young people to find their inner gifts. As co-founder of the Homies' Empowerment Program, he works to build community through recognizing the gifts that every person brings to that community.

    Would love to meet Cesar and talk to him about sharing his favorite ideas about education with my student teachers at National University. Please contact me. I admire you so much!
