Xavier Salazar is in his first year of being a Community Health Outreach Worker (CHOW) for the Wellness Center. He graduated from UC Berkeley in 2009 with a major in Social and Cultural Anthropology, and has worked at many elementary and high schools in the Bay Area since. He is also a founder of Spread the Word, a college outreach program. At his last job, with the Principal's Center Collaborative for adjudicated high schoolers, he became more interested in working with Wellness Centers. His passions are hiking, backpacking, traveling, and of course helping and talking to teenagers. Xavier.jpg
