My name is David Laidacker-Luna and I am your new Board of Directors President for Fiesta Youth. I would like to take the opportunity to thank one of the founding members of Fiesta Youth and former President of Fiesta Youth, Darrell Garcia Parsons for his years of service, dedication, passion, trust, strength and love of this organization. He will continue to have an active role in the organization and focus on our programming with the youth and families. I would like to thank the entire Board of Directors for your vote of confidence to take on this new role for Fiesta Youth. I have been part of Fiesta Youth for almost 4 years, starting out as a volunteer, then Secretary of the Board, and this past year as Vice President of the Board. My passion is building upon what has been established and working closely with the community to continue to build upon the relationships with other non-profits as well as with working with potential donors and sponsors of our organization to help meet the needs of this growing organization.
We as a non-profit, an all-volunteer working Board, we are always trying to find new strategies to increase the awareness of the organization’s capability. We have many youth and families that come from outside of the San Antonio community on a weekly basis to receive our support. Our goal in the coming year is to expand our community impact where youth support is much needed. With the new Board of Directors in place for the upcoming year we will set many goals and will strive to reach many of them with your support as we look ahead to a very bright future for our youth.
Please welcome the new Board of Directors to Fiesta Youth for the 2019-2020 term. They are the following:

With Love and Gratitude,
David Laidacker Luna,
President, Fiesta Youth
