Anthony Vega joined The Guardianship Project in September 2018. Anthony received his bachelor's degree in criminal justice from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in NYC where he also worked as a public safety officer on campus while finishing his degree.

Prior to entering college, Anthony began to build an identity in his Brooklyn community. He worked as a summer youth counselor at El Puente Leadership Center and the following year he worked as an after-school youth counselor at the St. Nicholas Beacon program. Anthony also worked as a councilmanic aide to former Council Member Diana Reyna concentrating on community outreach efforts in District 34 and on a Stop the Violence Rally against youth violence.

After graduation from John Jay College, Anthony worked as a social worker for two different nonprofit organizations in Brooklyn: The Puerto Rican Family Institute serving children with psychological disorders and also Patriot First serving homeless male veterans with substance abuse and mental health disabilities. All of these experiences have deepened Anthony’s passion and commitment to justice by providing assistance to those who need our help.
