Brenda Santos

Operations Manager
Brenda joined Prospera in January 2017 as the Operations Manager. She brings several years of experience working in nonprofits. Most recently, she was the Office Manager/Executive Administrator at Pivot Learning, a nonprofit organization that works closely with district leaders and school administrators throughout California to help improve student outcomes through executive leadership training. Prior to Pivot, she was the Operations Coordinator at The Education Trust – West (ETW) a non-profit policy and research organization, which advocates for justice in education for all students, specifically those of color and those living in poverty.

As a Bay Area native and daughter of immigrant parents, Brenda brings her commitment to her community and women, as well as her passion for justice to Prospera. While the Administrative Secretary at West County Community High School, she assisted Latino immigrant families past unjust barriers by empowering parents and students in understanding their rights and educational possibilities. Through her work and commitment to students and families, she gained not only lifelong friendships but also witnessed first-generation Latino students apply and attend college.
