Ep. 1 - Welcome to the Vollo Show - PART 1
Volunteer New York! Executive Director
What you are about to hear in our first Vollo Show episode is an interview with Volunteer New York!'s new executive director, Jeanette Gisbert that was recorded all the way back in March 2020, just days before COVID-19 would be declared a pandemic. It was a different time back then, but the spirit of this interview, which offers a great way to quickly get to know an emerging local leader, remains the same.
Thank you to our new listeners, we hope you will leave comments, likes, and subscribe to this podcast as we continue to bring you great and inspiring stories and interviews like this one! Keep listening to part two of this interview in the next episode.

Ep. 2 - Welcome to the Vollo Show - PART 2
Volunteer New York! Executive Director
The engaging one-on-one conversation with Volunteer New York! Executive Director, Jeanette Gisbert, continues in this conclusion to Welcome to the Vollo Show.
As a reminder, this was recorded just days before the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in March 2020. While the times have changed since then, both interviews in this series remain a great way to quickly get to know the emerging local leader, Jeanette Gisbert and to understand how her role as an AmeriCorp volunteer, her 20 years of nonprofit management experience, and her authentic leadership style are coming together at the right time to help Volunteer New York! rise up to the occasion as the demand for their free public services have never been higher (steadily climbing since this interview took place 6 months ago).
