Bryan Chau was born and raised in the San Gabriel Valley and was part of AYC programs as a youth. Growing up as an economically disadvantaged minority in a combative environment, he was met various challenges, but through AYC’s Youth Development programs, those challenges became lessons and pillars by which he lives his life now. These pillars have led Bryan to graduating from Gabrielino High School with numerous extracurricular accolades and graduating from Cal State Long Beach with dual degrees in Finance and Human Resources. With a strong gratitude to AYC for developing him during adolescence and a devoted passion for helping youth, he has come full circle in joining the AYC’s Board of Directors in 2016.
Bryan is currently the Vice President of Business Operations at Acceler8Networks, an infrastructure-based IT consulting firm, where he develops and maintains best-in-class operational practices, including planning, budgeting, process and procedures, personnel management and technology solutions. Prior to that, he worked for a Fortune 500 staffing firm with international prominence and won their prestigious President’s Club Award two years in a row, ranking #20 & #17 globally.
Bryan has a true passion to empower our generation’s youth by helping them realize their full potential through mentorship and speaking on his own experiences as a challenged youth. He gets true gratification by helping our youth overcome hardships while turning them into successes.
