Caucus: Up Close 2/8/14
Joseph S. Roth, President & CEO, NJ Sharing Network, talks about this non-profit, federally designated organ procurement organization responsible for the recovery of organs and tissue for the nearly 5,000 New Jersey residents currently awaiting transplantation. Susan F. Hall, MPA, CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs in New Jersey, discusses the Snowflake Youth Foundation, created by the NFL and the Super Bowl Host Committee to support charities throughout NY/NJ. Richard E. Robitaille, Ed.D., Assistant Vice President, Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, Berkeley College, counsels his military veterans to recognize the skills they have already honed while in service and teaches them to translate their impressive skill sets into civilian terminology. Unemployment rates of the younger veterans (18-25) are very high and disability rates are even higher. Veterans need to know they are valuable, can go college, and they can get into a good career field.
