As an Engagement Coordinator, Guido Hajenius manages programs in Southern California for iEmpathize, and engages the region in efforts against child exploitation and trafficking. His work includes fundraising; developing a base of interns and volunteers; and providing training for educators, law enforcement, and local community members. Guido also builds strategic relationships with people who can open channels of distribution for our programs. He also actively communicates our solutions at conferences, house media events, university campuses, and in the various sectors that intersect with vulnerable and victimized youth. In 2010, when he heard what iEmpathize was doing to help vulnerable and victimized children, Guido knew he needed to be a part of it; he launched the Southern California branch of iEmpathize in April of 2011. Guido brings almost two decades of non-profit experience to his role, including pioneering three non-profit organizations in leadership roles. His experience included training students for local and international service projects, mentoring student leaders, and developing a leadership team to sustain and expand the organizations. Guido is a regional representative of Truckers Against Trafficking, and has worked with the organization for many years engaging with members of the trucking industry in the fight against human trafficking.
