BRANDON ULLOA

Project Manager

Brandon Ulloa is a Mecca native who graduated from Desert Mirage High School. He then studied at College of the Desert before graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of California, Riverside. Brandon is passionate about helping people and loves the community he grew up in. For Brandon, working with Alianza was a perfect fit because it intersected with his love for his community and his desire to help. His favorite part of working at Alianza is the ability to deeply engage with the community, students, teachers, administrators, and elected officials. His role also gives him the opportunity to serve as a community resource. In whatever way people might need help, Brandon jumps in to connect them to the correct resources. 

After graduating from college, Brandon worked as a teacher in South Central Los Angeles. He has worked at other nonprofits and as a behavioral technician where he provided therapy for children with autism. Outside of work, Brandon plays soccer in local Coachella Valley leagues. Aside from soccer, he has a passion for Star Wars, loves to travel, and enjoys eating different types of food.
