Alex Jones, HNGR Assistant Director
Alex joined the HNGR program in the summer of 2015. A graduate of Wheaton College and alumnus of the HNGR program, Alex serves HNGR through the facilitation of internship placements, student mentoring, and networking with global host organizations. Prior to the HNGR program, Alex pursued his commitments to housing for low-income communities as in urban slums of Jakarta, Indonesia and in subsequent work with the Affordable Housing Continuum in Chicago. He and his wife, Lynn, are grateful for the opportunity to walk alongside students with whom they share a similar journey. Alex’s vision is to build bridges between HNGR’s longstanding international host organizations and Wheaton students in order to influence their values, vocation, and long-term goals. He hopes to see HNGR students develop life-long friendships with their host families and organizations.
