Derric Thompson, Board Member

Derric has spent the last three years working with young adults, helping them connect to employment and re-engage in school. His passion is mentoring youth, which is a big part of what he gets to do through his job as employment specialist in the SE Works InFocus program. Over 2 years ago he started working out at Rosewood, and gets to work with young adults from the community as well as other residents and guests of the center. In his words, “I went in thinking how much I can share but in return, I have learned so much more.” Derric goes above and beyond, volunteering in the community to support and help spread the word about resources available to young people. He regularly makes trips into correctional facilities to speak with young men about positive life changes. His goal is to continue to support the community in any way he can to build equity and help foster a better environment.  He has made incredible progress in connecting young people in the Rosewood community to resources, jobs and provides ongoing mentorship. Derric joined our board in the summer of 2015 and is will be starting a social enterprise marketing business with the youth in the Rosewood neighborhood.

Jorrel

Jorrel Bello, Board Member

Jorrel recently moved to Oregon, and found  Rosewood as the hub of his new community. Jorrel initially went into Rosewood wondering what it could offer him, but instead left wondering what he could offer the community. Jorrel started volunteering a few days a week, helping out on everyone’s projects and loved hanging out with all of the staff and community members. He has since moved up the mountain to pursue his outdoor passions, but continues to come help out and volunteer for special events.  Jorrel is excited to learn about his new role as board member, and is interested in finding more ways to support the community that welcomed him to the state.
