Welcome to www.VolunteerNJ.org

The VolunteerNJ.org Website

The Essex County Section of National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW/Essex) has always promoted volunteerism as part of our mission. Therefore, NCJW/Essex has agreed to administer the VolunteerNJ.org website, which refers volunteers to non-profit organizations in the Essex, Morris and Union County area of New Jersey. As of 2010, all new member agencies must be from one of these counties.

 Volunteer Needs of the TVN Agencies:

Essex County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) - New training dates

CASA has a new program called the Family Search and Connect Program, which is aimed at locating family members for kids who are aging out of the foster care. Volunteers who are computer literate are needed to look through DCP&P files, search the internet and Facebook to try to track down individuals. Engaging the family on the phone is also an important part of the work.  The goal would be to connect the youth with the found family members and piece together their history in a family tree. This is an opportunity that can be done from home. Training is being held on Wednesday February 5th and Thursday February 6th 2014. Click here for more information.
