Carlos Vargas

Interim Afterschool Program Director

A native Texan, Carlos was born and raised in Dallas. He moved to Austin in 2012 to attend UT Austin. After graduating in 2015 with a Bachelor’s in Economics, Carlos decided to stay in the tech hub to explore what Austin had to offer. After tackling various operations roles, Carlos wanted to discover a greater passion in his work and found his new home as a caretaker for a child with cerebral palsy.

Here at Side by Side Kids, Carlos hopes to couple his prior operations experience with his desire to empower underprivileged youth. Carlos is most excited to inspire youth, develop meaningful relationships and fulfill God’s work through servant leadership.

When not in the office, he dedicates his time serving as a KIDS volunteer at the Austin Stone Community Church and enjoys hiking, cooking, and playing ultimate frisbee.
