Mumtaz Mohammad was born and raised in San Jose, California. She attended San Francisco State University where she studied and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice Studies. During her studies at San Francisco State University, Mumtaz began working with youth at the YMCA and City of San Jose in afterschool programming. As a recreation leader, she quickly discovered her passion for the youth and began dedicating her time to inspire and motive youth to explore their potential in innovation, health, and leadership.

In July 2016, Mumtaz accepted the role as a Youth Program Specialist for the City of San Jose. Mumtaz currently oversees four sites in addition to the preschool programming and special events for the community. Mumtaz has used the CalSAC curriculum to enhance the programming. She continues to help provide quality care to youth through educational programming and fun opportunities that participants may not have otherwise had a chance to engage in at school or at home. Mumtaz appreciates the opportunity to be a role model for the youth and to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

Outside of her professional life, Mumtaz has a passion for cars, hiking, and attending sporting events. She also enjoys traveling to different countries and eating an array of diverse foods.

The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.
