Francisco Giles was hired by Dr. Leonard Baca, the founder of the BUENO Center for Multicultural
Education in February 2000. During the interview, Dr. Baca was asked. What is the BUENO Center? He
replied, BUENO: Bilinguals United for Education and New Opportunities. “We Provide financial
assistance to students to further their education for new opportunities”.
Francisco has worked in many capacities, payroll and budgets, as Coordinator under different project
Directors, and currently, as Coordinator and Instructor for the High School Equivalency Program (HEP).
As an instructor, it gives me great satisfaction to reach culturally and linguistically diverse population.
