Meet Anthony “A-Ram” Ramos. He is a Philadelphia native of Puerto Rican descent and currently the project director at Esperanza Inc. and an adjunct professor at Esperanza College of Eastern University. Anthony first connected with FTE during the pilot of DISCERN. DISCERN is a retreat designed to help young adults discover their purpose, passion and call. For Anthony, the retreat was a life-changing experience that helped him broaden his view of the church and ministry. Since then, Anthony has continued on his vocational journey with FTE by his side. He has served as a facilitator at several FTE gatherings and is the recipient of several grants including the Ministry Exploration and Mentoring Grant which is now available to both young adults and mentors. You can hear more of his story by listening to his episode on the Sound of the Genuine, FTE's podcast on exploring meaning and purpose.
The mission of Esperanza College, a Christian college program dedicated to the service of the Hispanic and local communities, is to enhance the knowledge, skills, and outlook of young people and adults so that they can live even more thoughtful, positive, productive, and purposeful lives.
