Our Volunteers

We would not be able to do what we do without our volunteers. Please offer your talents as a subject matter expert at one of our sustainability workshops, or join our young leaders as we serve our communities at the local food banks, community gardens, homeless shelters or nursing homes. We are always seeking project leads and administrative support, and speakers (i.e.: climate activists, social entrepreneurs, engineers, game designers, food equity leaders, etc.)

Ashleigh C., 12th grade
Moorestown Friends School (currently PhD candidate at University of Pennsylvania)
“As a student social justice activist, I have reached out to several student organizations that claim to support student involvement in social reform, activism, and ethical leadership. From my experience, these organizations have been unreliable, misled, and even costly. SGAP (Leaders) proved to be just the opposite...I came to the realization that we are the next generation and therefore, the next global leaders. SGAP (Leaders) exposed me to a network of students and professionals that have inspired me to strive towards becoming a leader.”
L. Jones, science teacher
Mt. Vernon School, Newark, NJ
“Last year our school along with several other New Jersey middle and high school students met at Fairleigh Dickinson University to develop and present an action plan/proposal for the Clean Water Crisis. This year we will join them again to discuss sustainability challenges.”
College Volunteer, Fellow
"SGAP Leaders immediately absorbed me into a dynamic and enthusiastic team environment, welcoming me as one of their own during a period of overwhelming progress. Despite my initial unfamiliarity with the tasks at hand, the SGAP team looked to me as a capable, promising, and productive member of their organization, trusting me with high stakes responsibilities that contributed to their progress as a whole. I am humbled and honored by their belief in me and am grateful for the opportunity to fulfill their expectations and promote their overall mission. "
Volunteer, Specialist
"Being an advisor for SGAP Leaders has provided far more personal rewards than I anticipated. I have had the opportunities to apply and grow my existing professional skills in novel ways, and have acquired several new ones. More importantly, my experience has allowed me to hone several critical 21st century leadership and organizational skills that needed improvement and to regain confidence in my own abilities at a time when I was feeling very demoralized in my professional life. I will be forever grateful for this opportunity to serve."
