Jaime Montoya is a programmer from El Salvador who studied for the first time in the United States with the World Learning Global UGRAD Program at the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2009-2010. He obtained his masters degree in information sciences and technologies in 2016 at Rochester Institute of Technology as part of the Fulbright Foreign Student Program. In 2012, Jaime was one of the first participants in World Learning's Alumni Engagement Initiative to receive an online small grant training course to implement the Computers Return to School project at a school located in the mountains in El Salvador, providing computers and basic computer and internet lessons to the kids. He was one of the core team leaders who implemented the Career Mentoring Network for High School Students with a $25,000 grant from the Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund for connecting U.S. State Department alumni mentors with students in El Salvador and Costa Rica. Jaime continues volunteering in El Salvador using his web development skills to donate websites for La Casa de mi Padre Foundation, an NGO that provides integral support to at-risk children and adolescents in El Salvador, and an English-speaking local church in San Salvador. He also teaches Sunday school and has taught programming and database courses at university level in El Salvador. Jaime's mission and dream is to work diligently as a programmer to make notable and significant contributions to software.
