Marvin Cabrera and El Cantico del Dominican Educator

38 minutes

Here at Que Lo Que, we know that supporting and training the next generation of leaders involves not just sound judgement, but also a commitment to looking in the mirror and challenging our own perceptions and perspectives. So, this week, we sit down in a crowded Harlem café to talk with educator and Wesleyan University alumnus Marvin Cabrera about his work helping students get to college, the shifting definition of manhood and the tricultural journey he’s taken to become a better teacher and father.  

Marvin is currently National Director of Dreamer Programs at the “I Have a Dream Foundation” where he helps support students from kindergarteners to alumni. Before his current role, he was a longtime employee at Columbia University’s Double Discovery Center where he directed one of its TRIO programs serving youth with a specific focus on academic tutoring, enrichment activities, and college counseling help.
