New York Coordinator mentored New York City College of Technology student

Daniel Young and Jacqueline Peretz

Jacqueline Peretz, New York Coordinator, mentored Daniel Young, a student at New York City College of Technology. In Daniel’s Human Services class, he was asked to visit a social service agency to see how it operated. He found Social Work p.r.n. and contacted Jacqueline to discuss what it takes to be a social worker.

Daniel became interested in social work because he loves working with people and he wants to help people recover from different diseases. Jacqueline was happy to see how excited Daniel was, realizing he could make a difference in other people’s lives as other people had made in his.

Daniel’s assignments for his Human Services class included a paper and presentation on what he learned during his meetings with Jacqueline. Along with helping with those assignments, Jacqueline offered suggestions on how to prepare for a career in social work.

Through Jacqueline’s mentoring, Daniel learned social work is a very dedicated career, and is much more than simply talking to people.

After meeting with Jacqueline for three months, Daniel was inspired to pursue a Master’s in Social Work and he is excited to take the licensing exam in the future.
