HoHoKus School of Trades Testimonial Thursday
In this video, we meet Ms. Naomi Cabello, a recent graduate of the HoHoKus School of Trades. Naomi was one of only three female students enrolled in the program, which focuses on manufacturing technology. Despite being in the minority, Naomi excelled in her coursework and was determined to succeed in the field. After graduating on July 28, Naomi wasted no time in finding work. Just three days later, she started her new job as a manufacturing technician.
In the video, Naomi showcases her skills and passion for the field and the satisfaction she gets from working with her hands and seeing the tangible results of her work. Naomi's success story is inspiring, particularly for young women who may be considering careers in traditionally male-dominated fields. By pursuing her passion and refusing to let gender stereotypes hold her back, Naomi has achieved her goals and is well on her way to a successful career in manufacturing technology.
~ Bergen CASA and Eastwick College Partners Up ~
Chef Charmaine DeCosta shared her love for cooking with a small group of foster teenagers at Eastwick College's kitchen in Hackensack beginning July 19. This is a pilot program started by Bergen County Court Appointed Special Advocates and The Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P) to teach teenagers in foster care cooking skills.
Eastwick College (especially President Thomas M. Eastwick and Hackensack campus director Abylash J. George) generously offered to be a partner with us for this program - and thoughtfully offered the use of the college's kitchen for the classes.
The program was conceived because many teenagers in foster care are going to ‘age-out’ of the system. That means that they cannot be reunified with their families (for various reasons), and there is no one to adopt them or take them in permanently. Instead, their plan is to receive services and support from DCP&P to prepare them to be independent at some point between the ages of 18 and 21 years.
The first class was a huge success as each person revealed their hidden skills and was eager to come to the next class.
The photo shows some of the team that made this happen: Charmaine DeCosta, (yellow top), Lucy Rosen from Bergen CASA (grey top), and the DCP&P Caseworkers, Rob Thorne Martha Vasquez, (black top), and Tanya Amoroso (Pink top) - we also had help from Malika Zlatkin and Jen Heit (not pictured).
