Tony Rizzo is a fatherhood mentor and team leader for this team.
I have over 30 years in the kitchen cabinet industry both designing kitchens and as a manufacturers representative. Spent 20 years as a Trustee of the School Fund in Hopkinton MA. Member of the Board of Directors of the Algonquin Council of the Boy Scouts. Also served as Vice President of the Hopkinton Youth Basketball.
I have been in this role and involved with Samara's Village for two years. As Team Leader I recruit, train and guide new mentors in helping baby dads raise healthy babies and provide financially for their families. Along with the other mentors, we approve and develop programs to recruit and retain male participants. I also interact and coordinate with the Home Visitor Team Leader to insure consistent program implementation, seamless communication, and adherence to Samara's Village guidelines and protocols.
Simply 'to pay it forward'. There were many people who helped me navigate through my life, now it's my turn to contribute.
For fun I like to collect wine and share it through entertaining. Golf, and yes do whatever I can to further the cause of Samara's Village.
