Greeting neighbors,


I wanted to send a quick note to fill you in on something terrific for teens and hopefully YOU!


In our efforts to increase teen programming that promotes self esteem, life skills, leadership and social responsibility, we will be offering youth ages 12-17 a “workshop series” entitled Social Society.  We wanted to give youth the opportunity to not only meet required service hours for school, but to learn and grow along the way.  We plan on teaching them about AmeriCorps, Peace Corps and Rotary International as well.


They will earn time for attending the workshops, but more importantly we want to connect them with their community (you!).   


If you could use some extra hands for special events, projects, envelope stuffing, handing out flyers and so on won’t you please take a moment and let me know if you would be interested in volunteers and in what capacity?   


As we all know, volunteers play key roles in the success of many things-locally and globally.  I am sure we can also agree that encouraging them during their younger years to understand the importance of social responsibly has a better chance of staying with them in their “older” years. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.  Additionally, please feel free to share this with friends, co-workers, etc from our service area (Clifton, Bloomfield, Cedar Grove, Verona and Montclair).


When you can, just email me back the contact person; your agency/organization name and if you have a few things in mind for volunteers.


Many thanks and have a terrific weekend.
