Jorge Pimentel was born and raised in Los Angeles, later graduating from California State Dominguez Hills with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. He has worked with children for over 10 years and has seen, first-hand, the benefits and importance of a positive role model in a child's life.
Jorge has previously worked at Soccer Shots, a youth enrichment program for preschools across Los Angeles, where he began as a coach and worked his way to a Director position, overseeing 150 preschools in the program.
Now with Friends LA, Jorge is excited to impact the communities and children where he grew up. He can’t wait to have the chance to be a mentor just like the mentors who helped him become the man he is today!
