For over fifteen years Steven Pascal has been working in Massachusetts to improve the lives of young people. His experience has afforded him the opportunity to work in the areas of: higher and elementary education, specialized foster care, juvenile justice, workforce development, and currently child abuse and neglect prevention. These varied fields of experience have given him the chance to meet hundreds of young people at different stages in their lives, dealing with unique issues, as they transitioned into adulthood. This experience has also allowed him to learn from and work collaboratively with many local youths serving non-profits, state agencies, and on federally funded initiatives.
A transplant from Brooklyn, NY; Steven has been working directly with youth in Massachusetts since the mid 90’s while working on completing his Bachelors in Political Science from Salem State University. In 2008 he earned a Masters of Urban Affairs degree from Boston University during which time he began focusing on working with youth at a macro level. In 2007 he took on a position as a Healthy Families Massachusetts Program Specialist with the Children’s Trust. As a Program Specialist, Steven provides technical assistance and support to the twenty five Healthy Families young parent home visiting programs throughout the state. As a representative of the Children’s Trust, he continues to work collaboratively with local, state, and federal agencies to further the mission of preventing child abuse and neglect by strengthening families throughout Massachusetts.
