Kateri Environmental Center
160 Conover Road, Wickatunk, NJ 07765
(1 hour south of NYC, on the same campus as Collier High School)
Please join the GSV staff and your fellow alumni as we join together to remember your time as Good Shepherd Volunteers. This retreat is an opportunity to reflect on your volunteer year and share stories. We’ll take a closer look at the role the four tenets of GSV continue to play in our lives - Simplicity, Spirituality, Community, and Social Justice. It will be a great opportunity to connect with old friends and meet other alumni.
GSV will be able to cover the majority of the expenses, but the retreat will cost $50 a person to attend. Meals and sleeping accommodations over the weekend will be provided by GSV at the retreat center. Retreat Center is accessible by car or NJ Transit commuter train (pick up available from train station). This retreat is intended for alumni of the Good Shepherd Volunteer program only.

About GSV Alumni
There have been close to 300 volunteers who have participated in the Good Shepherd Volunteer program.
Alumni are still a part of the Good Shepherd family even after their year is finished. We always encourage alumni to stay involved in the program through attending GSV events, recruiting, newsletter contributions, being a Community Support Person, and donations.
GSV sends out monthly email updates to its alumni network with relevant job postings, advocacy opportunities, and upcoming GSV events. If you are a former GSV and would like to receive these email updates, please contact email@example.com to be added to the email list.
