Agency Overview:

Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey (CPNJ) is dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities and other special needs by supporting personal growth, independence and participation in the community. Not limited to serving consumers with cerebral palsy, we provide specialized programs to meet a wide range of educational, therapeutic and social needs of people with various disabilities. 

Volunteer Needs:

  • CPNJ is looking for crafty volunteers to sew much needed clothing protectors for adults with disabilities. CPNJ would provide materials that volunteers would pick up from one of our adult day programs - in Irvington, Livingston, Wayne or Orange. Clothing protectors are made out of towels and fasten in the back with ties or snaps.

  • Join the "Brush with Greatness" art program. This program introduces adults with disabilities to famous works of art through a corresponding art project. Volunteers are needed to help plan the lessons and provide one-on-one assistance with adults with disabilities as they create their work of art.
  • The program takes place 9:30 - 11:30 am on the second Wednesday of the month in Irvington, on the third Wednesday of the month in Wayne, and on the fourth Wednesday of the month in Orange.

  • Volunteer fluent in Arabic is needed to translate for new student with special needs. Volunteer will spend time with the student in the classroom translating phrases for the teacher. Volunteer will also assist with communication with the parent. The school day is M-F 9:15-2:15. Volunteer one hour once a week or for a full day five days a week! We are completely flexible with your schedule.


  • Afternoon library helper at the Horizon School, Livingston: We are looking for a volunteer to serve in the library on select afternoons at the Horizon School, which serves students with multiple disabilities. The volunteer is needed Mondays from 1pm-3pm and/or Thursdays from 1pm-3pm. There are no students in the library during these times, so the librarian would manage the room and serve as a resource for anyone who stops by for books. The librarian would spend most of his/her time returning and shelving books as needed and helping with a variety of organizational and program-related projects including preparing crafts for use in library programs, doing computer research, assisting with admin/paperwork, etc.

Teen Volunteer Opportunities

  • CPNJ’s Horizon High School in Livingston, NJ needs volunteer student aides and classroom assistants during the summer. Dates: TBD/6 weeks of July-August    
  •  High school students are needed to volunteer their time at Horizon High School for students with disabilities.  Volunteers serve in one of two capacities: as a one-on-one aide traveling with a student from class to class or as a classroom assistant working in the volunteer’s preferred subject area (drama, art, English, science, daily living skills, world cultures, social studies, math or computers) and helping the teacher carry out lesson plans as classes rotate through each period. Scheduling is flexible.  
  • Grades: 9-12
