Jared Gencarella

Jared Gencarella is a Paralegal on the Asylee Outreach Program team at HIAS Pennsylvania. Jared graduated from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, and then spent a year as an Augustinian Volunteer at HIAS Pennsylvania working as an Asylee Navigator with the AOP team from 2019-2020. In this role, Jared worked with clients and families on Financial Literacy training, advocated for clients in the field when needed, and provided general support in consultation.

Besides the legal aspects of his position, Jared is fluent in Spanish, so working on the AOP team gives him the opportunity to practice speaking Spanish with his clients who mainly come from Spanish-speaking countries. Jared’s hopes are to continue to develop working across many different cultures and finding the bridges that bring us as people closer together. Jared hopes that he can take what he learns from working at HIAS Pennsylvania and bring the knowledge of navigating different cultures and supporting those in need to a Marketing world desperately in need of a greater awareness of these concepts.
