NYFPS' mission success relies on the collaboration of leadership and our volunteers. Volunteers help with greeting and participant coordination at events such as the annual State Conference and Coach Seminars. Their time and assistance makes a lot of difference in ensuring the smooth execution of the events. We are proud to have former FPSers as well as new faces assist in the preparation of equipment during our events. We understand that their time is valuable and we really appreciate the dedication of our volunteers.
We are extremely grateful to our volunteers who devote their time in helping with mentoring current FPS participants. Their experience and encouragement are invaluable to the learning process. Participants often tell us how advice from mentors inspire new ideas and improve their ability to identify underlying problems.
By providing feedback and suggestions to the leadership, volunteers build a strong foundation for the development of NYFPS as it begins to adapt to changing times. Since our volunteers come from a broad range of backgrounds, NYFPS is able to gain a diverse view on the program. Often, the knowledge and expertise of our volunteers offer interesting lenses to addressing challenges. In the coming years, we look forward to continue working with our volunteers towards the mutual goal of spreading problem solving skills to students in New York State.
