Jacqueline Robles is a policy enthusiast, consultant, and most importantly a dog mom of two. After living in the Los Angeles foster care system in the Indian Child Welfare unit for over fifteen years, Jacqueline was tired of the same statistics of Black and Brown youth failing in the system. As both Indigenous and Latina, Jacqueline became set on a career where she could level the playing field for youth of color.
Since then, Jacqueline earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Management at California State University Long Beach, and is projected to earn a Master of Public Policy degree from UCLA in June 2022. She’s had the opportunity to hold various leadership positions where she advocated and shaped policy for Los Angeles foster youth. Jacqueline was appointed as a Youth Commissioner for the Board of Supervisors by Supervisor Janice Hahn, and currently works as a consultant for the Office of Child Protection on a national initiative for foster youth called “Thriving Families, Safer Children”.
