Volunteer Opportunities

Funded by The Governor’s Office on Volunteerism, the Association of New Jersey Volunteer Centers’ web site, was established as New Jersey’s virtual volunteer center. The site offers access to information about volunteer opportunities throughout the state and provides those in need of volunteers with a place to post the information about their organization’s or community’s needs. The state’s volunteer centers (listed in the table below) have access to this site as does the general public and participating organizations.

Volunteer centers in local communities are the perfect place to start if you are interested in sharing your personal talents to help those around you. Opportunities vary from providing assistance for a short-term project that will call for a few hours of your time to an ongoing commitment that has the potential to bring you fulfillment for years to come. Regular volunteers are the first to say - you get far more from the experience than you could ever give. Contact your local volunteer center or visit the Association of New Jersey Volunteer Web site to learn how you can lend a hand to help someone in need today.
