Christian Villanueva is a workforce development administrator for the County of Los Angeles Workforce Development, Aging and Community Services (WDACS), focusing primarily on performance, data, technology, and communications. He has worked in this specific capacity since June 2018 but has been a part of the County’s economic and workforce development scene for almost seven years. Christian prides himself on creating opportunities for the community and feels that our society functions best when all residents are supported economically, connected socially, and engaged politically. He is looking to establish lifelong relationships with his Coro Workforce Leadership Network trainers and colleagues. As a former victim of a layoff, Christian hopes to work with everyone in the program to develop an infrastructure that can support all disconnected and disenfranchised individuals. Despite the many problems we face, he is relentlessly optimistic about our ability to solve anything collectively, which drives him personally and professionally.
