Meet the Team
Community Engagement Coordinator
Ivania Rivas is a native from El Salvador, who has devoted nearly 20 years to non-profit work with hopes of spurring the country’s economic development. In San Salvador, Ivania worked with vulnerable youth, at-risk farmers, and families in needs. During the last 16 years, she worked for Catholic Relief Services (CRS), an international humanitarian aid organization. Her final 8 years there, she served as the MEAL manager, maintaining the high caliber of CRS’ programmatic work in El Salvador by monitoring, evaluating, ensuring accountability, and identifying learning opportunities (or MEAL) of each program.
After graduating from the University of El Salvador with her degree in economics, she helped farmers living in the most conflict-affected zones of El Salvador, work that inspired her to dedicate her life to serving the community. Ivania grew up in a coffee farm with her family with minimal resources, and yet was able to attend and graduate college. Ivania was also able to successfully navigate relocating her family to Pittsburgh in 2017 and is excited to work with the Latino Community in Pittsburgh!
