Review for Volunteer Center Of Bergen County, Inc., Hackensack, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm actually a volunteer and a Board Member. My first exposure has been as a volunteer in the Mentoring Youth program, where I have been matched with a youngster for more than three years. The training, and ongoing support and guidance have been extremely helpful in what has been an extremely difficult series of scenarios. The Mentoring Youth Direrctor, and her staff have been entirely supportive, and it is always a pleasure to interact with each of them. At a volunteer recognition night, I became aware of the fact that there were openings on the Vulunteer Center board. The Volunteer Center is the parent agency for the Mentoring program. I have been on the Board for more than a year now, and I find the Board to be a dynamic group of engaged individuals who are committed to the concept of "volunteering". Our Board is complemented by our executive director, and her highly professional staff, who are all well informed, and eager to be of assistance. This is a well managed organization that delivers to people who need and appreciate the various programs available through this dynamic program!
