Sebastian Martinez has been a marketing and business development leader with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central NM for six years. Using his talents, he motivates people to become mentors and invest in their community, not only to help the kids grow, but to grow themselves. His passion for mentoring began after becoming a volunteer at the Youth Detention Center in Albuquerque. It was at YDDC that he realized: “Albuquerque has a problem guiding our youth. When the good people in our communities do not stand up and mentor, the criminals are more than willing to do so” he says “You have to ask yourself, will I stand up and help fight the problem, or will I become part of the problem by doing nothing?”. On his free time, he enjoys spending quality time with his family, fly fishing, hunting, backpacking, and reading. Sebastian earned his degree in Economics and Business Administration, has a background in sales and finance, and served in the U.S. Army.
