The LABSS Division sponsored a Human Services/Pre-Social Work Alumni Evening on Wednesday March 22nd. Thirteen alumni attended, and the evening finished with pizza and time to mingle. Current Human Services/Pre-Social Work students were invited to hear about the path the alumni have taken since graduating from NVCC. Alumni also offered pieces of advice, such as: “learn APA formatting; it is important,” and “be open to different experiences because you may end up practicing social work with an entirely different population than you expected.” 

 Approximately 50 current Human Services/Pre-Social Work students attended. Our own NVCC alumnus, currently a University of St. Joseph’s BSW student, Yovany Cruz, offered her advice. Cruz is completing her social work internship here at NVCC, engaging students in education and support services. In the photo, she is surrounded by other alumni, including Brianna Rose to her left, a current ACE tutor and BSW student at CCSU. Nayare Rivera, a Dec 2016 graduate spoke also about her recent hire at St Vincent De Paul, her NVCC fieldwork placement.

April also saw Human Services Club members making a difference on campus. On the 11th, Human Services students, in collaboration with staff from Safe Haven of Greater Waterbury, sponsored Sexual Assault Awareness Day in Prism Lounge. The event included informational handouts and nail-painting. Through the generosity of students, faculty, and staff, funds were raised to purchase sweatpants which Safe Haven will distribute to survivors. In fact, the ongoing efforts of the Human Services Club have raised over $389.00 this semester for this cause.

The Power of Networking: NVCC Alumni Gets Jump Start on Political Career Thanks to NVCC Psychology Professor

NVCC alumni Dorian Lockett beams from ear-to-ear when he thinks about the NVCC Professor who served as a mentor and, “took an extra step to truly engage with the student.” It’s thanks to Psychology Professor Lawrence Venuk that Lockett got his introduction and interest in politics. He recalls that Venuk put his name in for the Connecticut’s Legislative Internship program and nominated him for the Christopher Love Award, a scholarship that commemorates a fallen Waterbury-area social activist. Lockett says that because of his internship, he was introduced to J. Brendan Sharkey, former Speaker of the Connecticut House of Representatives, and Majority Leader.
