A few nights ago, the New York Rangers and the Los Angeles Kings faced off for the first game of the 2014 Stanley Cup. At VOICES, we feel a special connection to the two teams in the finals this year. We are excited for the Rangers, our hometown team, to be in the finals for the first time since they won in 1994.
Voices of September 11th is pleased to welcome Carrie Miller as the new program director of the New Brunswick office. Carrie comes to us with an extensive background in social work and case management. Prior to joining VOICES, Carrie worked as a resource case manager at NHS Human Services, helping clients locate community resources for financial assistance.
The Spring 2014 interns are here! The Voices of September 11th office in Connecticut is lucky to be located near two high schools with strong internship programs. Both Staples and New Canaan provide seniors with the opportunity to intern at a local company for the last four weeks of the semester. This year, VOICES’ six interns have been working tirelessly on the Living Memorial project.
“Intelligent, conscientious, engaging, and empathetic” are the words Sheri Burkat the past Program Director of the New Brunswick, NJ office used to describe the social work interns Amanda Fennimore and Lauren Picciallo she has been working with for the past year. Amanda and Lauren graduated two weeks ago with their Bachelors in Social Work from Rutgers University.
This year, the college interns for Voices of September 11th will tell their own stories – in addition to the stories they are helping to preserve in the 9/11 Living Memorial Project. In their blog posts, the interns will share their experience interning at VOICES. Our hope is that this will give our readers a different perspective on the work we do at VOICES.
