Magis Americas, Inc. is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has appointed Nate Radomski to serve as its new Executive Director effective Monday, March 5th, 2018.
“With more than 264 million children and youth currently out-of-school worldwide, I am humbled by this opportunity to do ‘more’ for others through Magis’ mission to support education and community development programs in Latin America and the Caribbean,” says Radomski. “I am proud to join Magis Americas and look forward to the work ahead with our collaborators here in the U.S. and our local partners in the Global South.”
Magis Americas, Inc., a shared work of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States (JCU) and Conferencia de Provinciales de América Latina y El Caribe (CPAL), derives its name from “Magis” (pronounced màh-gis), which means “more and better” in Latin. Both conferences recently reaffirmed their commitment to the organization’s mission to provide, alongside local partners such as Fe y Alegría, quality and inclusive education and community development programs for marginalized and impoverished communities throughout Latin American and the Caribbean.
“Nate has been a key element of Fe y Alegría’s international team over the last few years,” says Fr. Roberto Jaramillo, S.J., President of CPAL. “He brings with him a strong knowledge of Fe y Alegría, the Latin American reality, and has shown an understanding and ability to adapt to a model that is cherished both by Fe y Alegría and Magis Americas: a collective work model.”
Radomski is a journalist and international social worker and has spent most of his career defending the right to quality and inclusive education for all children and youth, both domestically and internationally. At Federación Internacional de Fe y Alegría, Radomski led the organization’s Friends of Fe y Alegría initiative, which has operated as a project of Magis Americas for the last four years. Prior to that role, he held a variety of positions, including program coordinator for Reading to Kids, a literacy non-profit organization in Los Angeles. Radomski holds a Master of of Social Work from Boston College’s School of Social Work.
