TeamWorks Program Assistant
Mario was first introduced to adventuring on public lands as a kid in El Paso, TX, an experience he would take throughout life. Like most of us he went down a much different path earlier while he achieved his Bachelors in Political Science and Anthropology from Colorado State University. Throughout that time, Mario also serve in the Colorado Army National Guard. At the end of school, he sought find a way to his share passion of playing and learning in wild public spaces with young people around the country. Mario has since spent the years working with various environmental education organizations from New York to Yosemite and now back to Colorado. He started at Teens Inc. the summer of 2015 with TeamWorks and now helps coordinate the program as it continues to grow.
