A New Year's Update
In January, VMP was pleased to announce staff updates featuring some familiar faces.
Vanessa Reyes, former VISTA leader, is continuing her work at VMP as VISTA Supervisor. Vanessa believes in the power of mentoring and is passionate about service. She looks forward to engaging VISTA volunteers who are committed to their mission to bring individuals and communities out of poverty as well as building partnerships with mentoring organizations serving youth across Virginia.
Betsy Bilharz, who joined VMP in 2012 as the office's Data & Development VISTA and served for the past two years as VMP's Operations Manager, has transitioned to a new role as Assistant Director of Program Services. Betsy is looking forward to connecting with mentoring program staff and mentors in a new way to provide support through training, technical assistance, and the Quality Based Membership process.
