    CASE for Kids Coordinator Izaguirre takes, then gives back through afterschool

    Afterschool activities became the change agent for a timid, young boy named Adrian Izaguirre, who grew up in a low socioeconomic neighborhood in southeast Houston.

    The 27-year-old is a program coordinator for City Connections at the Center for Afterschool, Summer and Enrichment for Kids (CASE for Kids). Izaguirre helps facilitate grants in 11 Houston City Council districts to nonprofits that provide afterschool programs for at-risk, urban youth.
