Get to know Anthony Ramos, an Adjunct Professor at Esperanza College in Philadelphia, PA, as he shares his story and explains how the college supports youth workers and pastors serving in high-risk areas, ultimately building a better future by addressing systemic issues and providing essential resources.

Esperanza College

Esperanza is a faith-based nonprofit organization driven by the biblical mandate to "serve the least of these." This college strengthens Hispanic communities through education, economic development, and advocacy.

...we want to see pastors, youth workers—just individuals that have a passion to serve—we want to see them fully equipped. Folks that are serving in urban contexts, there’s not as many resources as there would be in affluent communities and so we want to be able to equip them further… Anthony Ramos
