Association of New Jersey Volunteer Centers
The Association of New Jersey Volunteer Centers works to build the capacity of organizations recruiting, connecting, training and deploying volunteers who help create a more livable state. The Association shares best practices among members, produces educational materials and helps to market the concept of volunteerism throughout the state.
New Jersey is a small state geographically, yet it is home to nearly 9 million potential volunteers. Volunteer New Jersey is a partnership between the Association of New Jersey Volunteer Centers and the State of New Jersey Governor’s Office of Volunteerism (housed under the Secretary of State’s Office).
Our goals are to provide:
~ every resident in New Jersey with immediate access to information about community needs where they work, where they live or anywhere in between
~ every not-for-profit organization in the State with a place to register their volunteer needs.
The Volunteer New Jersey Partnership’s initial venture is to create a statewide web-based volunteer database, specifically geared to address and meet the needs of all New Jersey communities. Our database will serve as New Jersey’s virtual volunteer center, capable of connecting volunteers looking for volunteer opportunities with charities in need of volunteer assistance.
