Assistant Director of Postgraduate Programs
William Figueroa has been working in the non-profit sector for two decades beginning with his service as an AmeriCorps Member and AmeriCorps Leader in his native borough of Brooklyn. William now brings that experience to the AmeriCorps VISTA Fellows and other postgraduates at ACE. While earning his BA in Communication and Media from the City University of New York, William worked as a Program Director for two AmeriCorps programs—a health education Corps in Brooklyn and an academic enrichment Corps in East Harlem. He also has directed food pantry, college-prep, and after-school programs. Prior to moving to the Capital District in the summer of 2016, he managed a community center in the Bronx. His goal is to enrich the postgraduate experience for students via community service—to ensure the experience for the community and the postgraduate is transformative.
