Meet Jesse Piña of Exodus Volleyball Club in Chula Vista

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jesse Piña.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Jesse. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Exodus Volleyball Club was born with the mission of providing quality and competitive volleyball to communities that have not had an equitable opportunity. We started off serving the homeless youth of downtown San Diego and have now expanded to Chula Vista where we train competitive travel teams.

The story has unveiled all on its own, we just came along for the ride.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
This was our first rodeo so there were plenty challenges along the way. The biggest one was planning to start our first season with only three teams but ending up with seven teams. We have learned from this past season and improved on the things that worked for our organization. We are excited to begin our second season, we feel it will be our best one yet.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Exodus Volleyball Club story. Tell us more about the business.
Exodus Volleyball Club is a non-profit community organization dedicated to providing quality coaching and service learning to our athletes and the communities we serve.

We currently offer competitive travel volleyball in the Chula Vista area and provide free coaching for youth that have been impacted by homelessness in the Downtown San Diego area (Barrio Logan).

We are most proud of an upcoming trip to Vietnam and Laos in the summer of 2018. Exodus Volleyball Club in partnership with the National Ability Center and San Diego Diplomacy Council will be bringing volleyball clinics to Hanoi, Vietnam and Luang Prabang, Laos.

This is an international exchange program where we take a group of youth that have been impacted by homelessness from San Diego and a group of youth from Vietnam and Laos come to our facilities.

What sets us apart would have to be that we are built and operate as a community organization.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I stopped believing in luck a long time ago. Life and business have bloomed all on their own, I am simply a part of the whole and have been enjoying every second of it.
