Ray Reyes, Executive Director
Ray is thrilled to support his older brother’s dream of creating Beyond the Boroughs. As Administrator, Ray is committed to the bright futures of hardworking youth and the rapid growth of the organization.
Ray received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Rowan University and his Master of Arts degree in Higher Education from New York University. His interest in higher education began as an undergrad working as an Admissions Ambassador, giving tours to prospective students. It was during this time that he understood how some students did not have the same access to college as others. With the guidance of his many mentors, Ray was inspired to begin his life-long mission to serve underprivileged students. As a grad student at NYU, Ray was responsible for reading and making decisions on applications to the Stern School of Business. This experience has greatly enhanced his knowledge of the complex college admissions process.
After graduation, Ray was an Assistant Director and Career Counselor at NYU’s Wasserman Center for Career Development. There, he helped blue-chip employers with their recruitment strategies of NYU students. In this capacity, Ray also worked directly with the students to help them make informed career decisions. Ray was also responsible for all multicultural career development programming, including diversity breakfasts, networking events, and internship programs.
