Jonel Seon, MBA in Sustainable Enterprise, serves the team as the Student Services Manager at the Laney College Green Jobs Team, and is responsible for recruitment, enrollment and registration, as well as light case management and developing organizational partnerships. Over the past five years, Jonel has worked with organizations like The Institute for Environmental Entrepreneurship and the Alameda Unified School District, integrating project initiatives that have led to improved organizational productivity, strengthened stakeholder relationships, and a stronger commitment to triple-bottom-line practices. Seeing a connection between education and sustainable urban development, Jonel completed a strategic business plan for a non-profit initiative dedicated to promoting youth development in Oakland by providing high school dropouts, between the age of 16 and 21 years of age, with access to employment, academic support, and business education.
