Joshua Abreu, M.A.: Building Community, Reaching for Justice Speaker Series

6:00pm - 8:00pm EDT December 11, 2013 EST
Murray Lounge in the Sakowich Campus Center
Joshua Abreu, M.A., Retention Specialist at Northern Essex Community College, will speak on “The Power of Community Colleges - Achievement through resilience and persistence”

Joshua Abreu illuminates the theoretical and practical ways of re-framing “at-risk” young people to “high-potential” students.  His strength-based approach encourages two traits essential for the success of non-traditional students: resilience and persistence.  In addition to teaching part-time at Northern Essex Community College, Mr. Abreu serves at NECC’s Retention Specialist and has worked with young people and families in his past roles in law enforcement and social work.
