Partner with Student Hires for the 22-23 School Year!

Manuel Zavala

Founder & CEO

Manuel Zavala is the founder and CEO of Student Hires. Student Hires partners with schools, districts, universities, and employers to create experiential K-12 after-school, summer, and youth educational programs led by local college & university students.

Manuel came up with the concept of Student Hires while working towards his Bachelor's degree at the University of California Riverside. During his time at UCR, Manuel balanced the life of a struggling college student with the life of a high school computer science teacher. With the help of many mentors, he was able to return to his hometown of San Bernardino to teach on a part-time basis while attending college. After gaining 4 years of high school teaching experience, he made the leap to focus solely on Student Hires in October of 2021. Now, Student Hires has been focused on collaborating with K-12 schools & districts, colleges & universities, as well as community employers, to create valuable job opportunities for local college & university students.

Manuel is Open For:

  • Mentorship & Coaching
  • Partnership Opportunities
  • Creating Opportunities
