UnidosNow Appoints New Leader

When Cintia Elenstar moved to Florida from Argentina in 2012, she didn't think she'd end up in the top job at UnidosNow, a Sarasota nonprofit that helps Latino students get into college.

But three years later, she has been promoted to executive director, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports.

"Since joining UnidosNow, which specializes in supporting Latino students on their path to earning a postsecondary credential, Elenstar has helped the nonprofit innovate and advance its mission," the board said in a statement.

"At the onset of the pandemic, she adapted the organization's flagship program, the Future Leadership Academy, to a fully online format, ensuring that students' progress toward achieving their academic dreams could continue."

Before joining UnidosNow, Elenstar ran her own travel company in Argentina, where she was a one-woman operation with 25 employees.

She also taught English as a second language to new citizens in underserved communities, and worked as a legal assistant supervisor in a public defender's office.

Elenstar is currently pursuing a master's degree in nonprofit management and a graduate certificate in fundraising at the University of Central Florida.

UnidosNow offers educational and professional outreach initiatives to the Hispanic and Latinx communities in Sarasota and Manatee counties
