Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll), the nation’s foremost inclusive entrepreneurship program, has promoted Jeremiah Hernandez to the position of Community Partnerships Manager effective Jan 1.
Jeremiah, who has been with EforAll since 2015, first as Program Manager, then as Executive Director of EforAll’s South Coast program serving New Bedford and Fall River, MA, will be serving as Community Partnership Manager. As Community Partnerships Manager, Jeremiah focuses on helping EforAll hit its growth objectives by engaging with city leaders, philanthropists, and academics – in a consultative manner to assemble the resources and organizational support needed to secure an initial and ultimately a final agreement with EforAll.
“Jeremiah brings a wealth and diversity of experience to our team,” David Parker, EforAll CEO said in a statement. “As we work towards expanding across the country, Jeremiah’s role will be crucial in helping us to engage with communities that seek to establish an EforAll program.”
Prior to his work with EforAll, Hernandez was the Co-Founder of the UGLYgallery (an acronym for U. Gotta Love Yourself) whose mission is to provide consumers with art that is always innovative, fresh, and, cultured street culture. Hernandez has a bachelor’s degree from Providence College in Political Science.
“I’m so excited to take on this new role!” said Jeremiah. “When I served as Program Manager in the EforAll South Coast program I told my then boss, Shelley Cardoos, if a position was ever created to evangelize about the goodness of EforAll, I want to be that person! I feel so strongly about the communities we are affecting and the people we serve. As a recovering entrepreneur, I see the value this program provides for the passionate entrepreneur who is making their community better and providing a life for themselves and jobs for others. I can’t wait to share our story with the rest of the country!”
