Liz Romero began her work with CCI three years ago as a volunteer. Now she is the full-time program manager for Denver YouthBuild. Some of her many roles include keeping students engaged, teaching leadership development classes, managing community resources, and planning curriculum.

After earning a degree in criminal justice, Liz found that her passion is in working with youth. When she is not at CCI, she likes to spend time with her four children, whose ages range from three to fifteen.

Liz's life motto is "Success is not the destination but the journey."
