Building Connections for the Future

Joe was one of six children and the first to attend college. To help support his education, Joe applied for and earned a Hispanic Scholarship Fund merit award sponsored by Toyota.

While earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting, Joe co-founded a Latino student networking group. Once graduated, he was hired at Toyota and was pleasantly surprised to see former members of his college community already employed at Toyota.

Together, they formed Toyota Organization for the Development of LatinOS (TODOS), a business partnering group that fosters a sense of “familia” both at Toyota and within local communities through mentoring and volunteer work.

“Though our work in the community with business partnering groups, we’re able to make a positive impact to students and families.”
