“Lunch and Learn” for Volunteer Managers

People who manage volunteers -- especially youth volunteers -- are invited to attend a "lunch and learn" session on Monday, September 21, from 11:30-1:00 at the Volunteer Center. The focus will be primarily on youth volunteering.

The Corporation for National and Community Service reports that 68% of all K-12 schools are now involved with service learning and/or youth volunteering, and the Volunteer Center's website has tracked more than 6,000 requests for information about youth service opportunities so far this year.

The discussion will be relevant to those who work with volunteers at nonprofits, schools, government agencies, community or faith-based organizations. Leading the discussion will be Denise Schachter of Teaneck High School and Debbie Emery of the Volunteer Center. The program is free, but those who attend should plan to bring their own lunch. Pre-registration is required by September 17. For more information or to register, e-mail, or call (201) 489-9454, ext.114.
