Experience 

Eddie González-Novoa has spent the last 20 years developing leaders in education, youth development and community service. He received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University and Masters degrees in Divinity and Education from Harvard. As an echoing green Fellow he co-founded Jumpstart New York, now the premiere resource for early language and literacy in the tri-state area. While at the Hetrick-Martin Institute, he managed a statewide training portfolio and launched an afterschool program serving a thousand LGBTQ adolescents and young adults each year.

In January 2013, Eddie left a successful and satisfying job as Executive Director of Public Allies New York to move to Houston, TX and help his nephew launch The Survivor Games, a nonprofit to support and connect teen cancer survivors through video games. He has also served on the organizing committee of TEDx Houston and mentored educational tech and gaming companies and nonprofits.
