Robin Rapport is a professional writer who specializes in Instructional Design with undergraduate and advanced degrees in Cultural/Social Anthropology and Media Ecology/Communications. This background gives her a cultural, high-level perspective of the needs and sociological challenges of fostered children who age-out of the system.
In addition, her cross-cultural expertise has enriched her charitable and professional work helping others. For example, Rapport has written extensively on the healthcare system and cultural disparities. She has helped universities, pharmaceutical companies, non-profits, government, neighborhood organizations, and religious groups improve sensitivities and account for diversity.
Her charitable work includes serving children and adults alike, and encompasses over a decade of volunteering as a Girl Scout Leader, a Boy Scout Advancement Advisor, and various positions (including President) of her Temple’s Sisterhood and her local Neighborhood Association. In addition, Rapport serves on the Trenton Youth Investment Advisory Board and will bring much to Age-Out Angels.
Holly L. Goldberg, RN is a school nurse presently working in a private school setting in Princeton, NJ. She earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Duke University, later continuing her education with a JD from Cardozo School of Law. Having practiced in the legal fields of Bankruptcy and Foreclosure, Goldberg saw firsthand what financial insecurity can do to families and children.
After a short stint staying home to focus on her own children, Goldberg returned to her first career - that of caring for people directly as a nurse. Working with children of all ages, nursery school through 12th grade, she has worked at private and public schools, as well as sleepaway camp.
Her charitable work includes participating as a Temple Board Member and a decade of volunteering as Girl Scout Leader. She was a founding Board Member of Attitudes In Reverse, an organization dedicated to decreasing the stigma of mental illness, and decreasing the occurrence of teen suicide. The populations she has served have ranged from the very rich to the very needy. This work has given her a unique understanding of both the physical and psychological needs of the developing child, and will bring great insight to the Age-Out Angels program.

He comes to the project after 45 years of business experience in a number of industries including retail, manufacturing, and publishing.
