Get to Know: Eric Cervantes!

Name: Eric Cervantes
Title: Volunteer Outreach & Engagement Manager
Start Date: June 2018

My favorite memory from working at BBBSCI is … Winning Best Chili at the Annual Chili Cookoff 2 years in a row.

What I love most about my job is … Working with so many people! Staff, Bigs, Board members, corporate and community partners, and potential Bigs! I get to meet a lot of really cool people!

How has mentoring played a role in your life? I have always had mentors who poured into me and guided me to being the person I am today. Some of those relationships started organically and were instrumental in my professional growth and personal development (thank you Mr. Doherty and Ms. Brown!) One of my mentors growing up did stem from my involvement with Starfish Initiative as a mentee. Arif was always pushing me to look ahead 3+ years into my future, which was essential for me as a high schooler!

When I’m not at work, you can find me … Tending to my plants, hanging out with my friends, riding my bike around Indy, and waiting for May. #LetsGoRacing

What is your favorite spot(s) in Indy? Grounded Plant and Floral Co., Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Neidhammer Coffee Co., Irsay Family YMCA, Sun King Downtown
