Louie Lorenzo

Louie’s past 20 years of work experience includes, Bylas Recreation Coordinator, Substance Abuse Counselor (ADAP), Prevention Coordinator (ADAP/SCWC) and Health Educator (I.H.S.) serving both the Bylas and San Carlos communities.

“I enjoy teaching traditional knowledge to the younger generations who are willing to learn and are curious about ancestral knowledge. My goals when working with our youth is teaching them who they are, teaching them to understand the two worlds they live in, and helping them reach their full mental/physical potential. It all comes down to being respectful, being gratified and being happy.”
