A leadership and service  experience for teens.
























What is Ready Set Serve?


Plans are set for the next session of Ready, Set, Serve – Bergen Volunteer Center’s Leadership Program for young people interested in serving their community.  This program is available to students entering Middle School or 9th and 10th grades in September 2016.


Ready Set Serve (RSS) is a unique training program designed to help prepare the next generation for leadership roles in their communities.  Through a state-of-the-art curriculum that includes both classroom instruction and experiential training, RSS teaches middle- and high-school-age youth a broad array of leadership skills applicable to community service.  The ultimate purpose of RSS is to help create stronger communities - and a stronger nation - by igniting in young people the ability and the desire to make meaningful, lifelong contributions to their communities.


Our 4-day, leadership program will take place from June 27 through June 30, 2016.  We began at 9 am and finish up by 3 pm each day.  The program will take place at the Volunteer Center at 64 Passaic Street in Hackensack.


Students will begin to develop a service project which they will be able to focus on throughout the 2016-17 school year.  We are also planning a group service project in late August!  The fee for this 10 month program is $350.
