Volunteer Receptionist since 2006

“It is easy to share my impressions of the NDG Community Council after eight and a half years of work as a volunteer here. What stands out first is the quality of the interpersonal relationships both among the Council staff themselves and with the public. The Council responds to the needs of clients in a remarkable way. Highlights of this response include housing, community resources, the tax clinic, etc.
It is important to also thank the other community organisations of NDG for the cooperation they give to both the Council and the general public. It seems to me that since the start of my volunteering I have acquired the knowledge and ability to manage the multiple requests that we receive. Thank you, NDG Community Council”
