New Settlement held its annual Winter Social for college students on January 11th. It was an opportunity for college students and program alumni to connect with each other and network with professionals. This year, the event opened with a summer internship resource fair. A big thank you to the organizations that participated: New Settlement Apartment’s CASA; City Service Corps; Adobe Inc.; the Department of Education; News 12, the Bronx; the Office of Congressman Jose Serrano!
In addition to dinner and networking, the event closed with an alumni panel. Alumni who have graduated from college and are now working in various professions answered questions and shared stories about their journey from college to career. Thank you to Leon Sutherland, Darrlyn Moorer, Nesualy Torres, Mariel Charles, and Christopher Miree for “keeping it real” and giving our students sound advice regarding planning for the future!
