SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA (MPG) - The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors at its April 9 meeting authorized the County Executive’s appointment of Anita Maldonado as the Sacramento Employment and Training Agency (SETA) executive director. The Sacramento City Council, at its April 9 meeting, also confirmed Maldonado’s appointment. 

​Maldonado’s appointment is effective, as of April 10.

"Ms. Maldonado's extensive experience in nonprofit administration, combined with her commitment to understanding community needs and delivering impactful programming, makes her the ideal choice for executive director of the Sacramento Employment and Training Agency,” said Sacramento County Executive David Villanueva. 

Maldonado has more than 25 years of executive level and administrative management experience. Her experience includes leading nonprofit and public social services agencies that champion policies, programs and efforts to heighten awareness regarding issues that impact youth and underserved communities.

Maldonado also has nearly eight years of teaching experience as an adjunct faculty member of the Franklin University Public Administration Department, where she has taught multiple online courses that cover public and nonprofit governance and leadership. 

Since 2020, Maldonado served as the Chief Executive Officer of Social Advocates for Youth, where she was responsible for the oversight of Youth Crisis, Career and Educational, Counseling, and Housing service programs. Prior to her current role, Maldonado served as the Chief Executive Officer of California Human Development. Maldonado also worked for IMPACT Community Action as the Chief Operating Officer. 

Maldonado also possesses a Ph.D. in higher education from Kent State University and a master’s degree in public administration and Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from the University of Akron.

SETA, a joint powers agency of the City and County of Sacramento, was formed in 1978. SETA connects residents to jobs, business owners to employees, education and nutrition to children and assistance to refugees. For more information, visit the SETA website at www.seta.net.
