Jorge Ferrer was raised in Oakland, California. He graduated from OMI in 2010. Mr. Ferrer began at Merritt college and then went off to transfer to UC Berkeley in 2016 and graduated from CAL in 2018. Mr. Ferrer obtained his BA in Social Welfare.
Growing up in Oakland was challenging for him for many reasons. Jorge surpassed the obstacles that could have potentially led him to a different life. With support from friends and family he was able to pursue an education to help adolescents in similar situations he was once in.
Jorge is now the academic advisor for 10th graders at The College and Career Center. His goal is to help cadets choose the right path towards their education; graduate from OMI and help them apply to colleges/trade schools.
He played soccer for two semesters at Merritt college. Jorge now coaches both the boys’ and girls’ varsity soccer teams at OMI.
