Leading Change through Social Entrepreneurship
Saturday, March 30
Presenter: John Moreno-Escobar founded his own non-profit organization (Latino Youth for Higher Education Program) in order to educate and assist newcomer Latino students and families in the process of applying, preparing and paying for higher education in the United States. He is naturally from Bogota, Colombia, but migrated 9 years ago to further his studies. In 2010 he graduated from Baruch College in Public Affairs with a minor in Latin American Studies and the Caribbean. He is currently pursuing his Masters in Public Administration at the School of Public Affairs – Baruch College. John was recently appointed as Partnerships Manager in the NY Region for New Futuro. This National Educational organization has created an educational community that helps Latino families get their students into college and beyond. Through a completely free, bilingual, ‘high- tech, high-touch’ experience, New Futuro connects those that need help with those that provide it. As a Partnerships Manager for the New York Region, he is responsible to create healthy and strong relationships, with major stake holders and share all the New Futuro resources with the Latino Community. John will be leading our workshop on social entrepreneurship.
