Andrew Sanchez

Andrew brings together and cultivates meaningful relationships with organizational partners and manages strategic initiatives to amplify Flamboyan’s family engagement priorities and impact. He is committed to education because he believes that it is an essential key to success. He supports the notion that education fosters growth both inside and outside of the classroom and opens doors to limitless opportunities. Additionally, Andrew is passionate about visibility and representation because they set the bar for what is possible and allow people to serve as a voice for others.

Prior to joining Flamboyan, Andrew served as a Program Manager for a nonprofit organization that oversaw programming for DC students attending college across the country, which included financial aid processes, academic counseling, data collection + reporting, and partnership building. His degree in counseling allows him to leverage the power of relationships to define needs, determine approaches, leverage support, and bring people together to reach a common goal.

Outside of Flamboyan, Andrew loves to dance. He has taught salsa classes all over the DMV and enjoys interacting with people from different backgrounds through his lessons. Andrew also likes DIY projects that challenge his creativity and manual skills.

Who was your favorite teacher in school? Ms. Cruz – she was not afraid to share parts of herself in her lessons, ensured that her students were able to see themselves in what they learned, and demanded that her students think critically about the world around them.
