Fulfilling the mission of Soles 2 Souls through leadership, compassion, and encounters.

Jake Krotonsky & Alec Bansal

Co-Presidents & Co-Founders

Jake Krotonsky and Alec Bansal are juniors at Brophy College Prep. In the Fall of 2021, they started Soles 2 Souls in light of their passion for shoes and a desire to make a change in the world. Today, they continue to operate this initiative with like-minded individuals by giving cool, new shoes to numerous different marginalized communities throughout the valley.

Director, Community Outreach

Luis is also on leadership teams for Hermanos Unidos and Young Entrepreneurs at Brophy. He is a native Spanish speaker and is happy to assist anyone in both English and Spanish.

Luke Burns

Luke is passionate about the sport of soccer, which has led to his involvement and volunteering at Ability 360 - a local gymnasium that assists individuals, who have mental and/or physical disabilities, play sports. He looks forward to continuing to give back to his community through his role at Soles 2 Souls.

Edison Martinez Estrada

Director, Marketing & Public Relations
