Koya was engaged to lead the search for Roca Boston’s Director. Our partnership resulted in the placement of Carl Miranda.
A Salvadoran immigrant, Carl spent his formative years in South Central Los Angeles in the 1980’s. As a professional, Carl has worked for many years in urban environments in front-line and management capacities.
Carl brings 10 years of nonprofit experience working with state agencies such as DYS, DMH, and DCF in Massachusetts and Connecticut. Before joining Roca, Carl was the Center for Human Development’s Western Regional Program Director & Contract Manager for Adolescent Re-entry Services, where he oversaw the administration of community and clinical services for 200+ youth re-entering western Massachusetts from lock-up facilities.
Carl holds a BA from UC Berkley in Ethnic Studies and Rhetoric, a Masters in American Studies from NYU, Masters in African American Studies from Yale, and his ABD at Yale University. His graduate research focused on Juvenile Justice Reform and the school to prison pipeline.
