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.
Susan Proietti is a retired clinical social worker with a 40-year history of work with patients and clinicians doing clinical supervision, program consultation and administration. She worked for 20 years with the State of NJ as a School Based-youth Services Director and consultant. Past work experience also includes New York Presbyterian Hospital in the departments of Medicine and Psychiatry.
Now retired and involved in her community, Susan serves on the boards of the Bergen Family Center and the Southeast Senior Center for Independent Living. We are lucky to have her working alongside the Matchmakers from the Redefining Retirement program.
