Redefining Retirement, a new program at the Bergen Volunteer Center, works with interested nonprofits to identify their volunteer needs and connect them with retired volunteers who have the specific skills needed. We are excited to introduce to you some of the programs volunteers! Redefining Retirement Matchmakers are trained volunteers who will make initial connections between the nonprofits and interested retirees.
Louisa Hellegers is currently in her third retirement. Louisa has been a volunteer with the Bergen Volunteer Center for about two years, first chairing the research to start the program, then designing, and now implementing the newest Volunteer Center program, Redefining Retirement. She says that all of her previous professional and volunteer experience has come together as she manages this important new initiative for the Volunteer Center: connecting retired volunteers with Bergen County nonprofits who need the volunteers’ expertise to best serve their communities and help achieve their goals.
