Jesús Arenas is manager of Youth Engagement at Special Olympics Latin America, working to provide spaces that enhance the abilities of youth with and without intellectual disabilities in and out of the sports venues and classrooms.
Born and raised in Panama, in his work experience he has worked with other organizations related to the recognition of diversity and promotion of inclusion, such as the Scout Movement, developing and applying diversity and inclusion policies and guidelines in the region.
He is a graduate of the University of Panama with a Master's Degree in Education in Sexuality, Population and Human Development with a Gender Approach.
His experience, studies and personal conviction, make him a person who contributes to the empowerment and capacity building of youth to be a voice, action, inspiration and basis for building a more just and equitable society for all.
Through the power of sports, people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success. Our athletes inspire people in their communities and elsewhere to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.
