Hi there! My name is Gina Galvan. I am from Lovington, New Mexico. I am a South Plains College Alumna where I was a campus ambassador and a SPC Texan Cheerleader. I received my Associates in Psychology and continued my higher education by transferring to Texas Tech University where I was a Human Science ambassador and received a B.S. dual degree in Psychology and Human Development and Family Studies. Additionally, I am also a Certified Community Health Worker.
I began my journey working with youth three years ago as I was still in my undergrad studies and interned at Buckner’s FYI Transition Center. While interning with Buckner, I developed a passion for working with youth as I coordinated PAL (Preparation for Adult Living) classes where I taught life skills classes and core elements for our transitioning foster youth. The satisfaction of seeing the success of youth when they transitioned into adult life such as finding a job or finding a place of their own or just hearing how eager they were when enrolling into college was very rewarding.
I am beyond thrilled to now serve our youth in the Lubbock County community as a Youth Prevention Specialist.
“Educating and supporting our youth is the best way to invest in a flourishing future.”
