OUR TEAM

Alessandra Giancaterino

President

Our director has more than twenty years of experience in education and language translation, including specialisations in psycho-pedagogy and legal translation. Alessandra is continually updating her experience and is knowledgeable about new technologies and teaching methodologies. She has studied and worked with people from a wide and diverse range of cultural and social backgrounds within countries such as Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States, amongst others. Her passion is to support and provide new personal and professional opportunities to those who need them most, motivating them to believe that achieving their dreams is possible, despite their current circumstances and seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Driven by this passion, Alessandra founded Conexión: Creando Puentes in 2014 with the support of those who, like her, want to participate in promoting a more equitable world, where diversity is synonymous with acceptance, respect and parity.

Andrea Petrucci

Vice President

With a degree in Economics and Business Administration and exceptional organisational skills, Andrea continues to be the greatest support that Conexión CP could have. In addition to his practical skills, he is a man of great empathy and common sense which is a very valuable combination in undertaking the many tasks and responsibilities he covers in his role. Amongst these responsibilities also lies the coordination of the administration, finance, and legalities of Conexión CP as well as assisting in the planning of new programmes and projects. Furthermore, his language skills enable him in communicating efficiently with all relevant bodies pertaining to the charity.
