Brandon Zamel

For over 10 years, Brandon has worked with both children and adults with various forms of developmental and learning disabilities. In 2002 his work with Best Buddies was featured in a documentary aired nationally on NBC. During his involvement, he acted as a chapter coordinator, treasurer, fundraiser and mentor. Brandon has worked with LAUSD’s Continuation High Schools program which works with at risk youth; many of whom have behavioral and learning impairments. For over 5 years he found and ran a community center in Santa Cruz, CA that operated on a budget, solely comprised of donations and volunteers, during which time funds were raised for other local non-profits. For his work he was awarded among other acknowledgements, the UC Santa Cruz Porter Resident of the Year.
