New Volunteer Opportunities


New Opportunities

  • Be a New Jersey State House Tour Guide!

    The New Jersey State House Tour Program seeks individuals who enjoy history, civics and have an appreciation of art and architecture to conduct tours of one of the nation's oldest state capitols. If this describes you, please contact Carol Rogers, Tour Guide Liaison at crogers@njleg.org or call 609-847-3150. Training begins this spring.

  • Adolescent Mentoring Program

    The Adolescent Mentoring Program provides young adults, ages 14-20 who are at-risk for child abuse and neglect, with a responsible adult Mentor. Supportive adult relationships are a critical part of encouraging healthy youth development and when there is no one else there to fill this role or to provide youth with the attention they need, Mentors can make all the difference! Our mentors assist youth by being a listening presence to guide them through their ever-changing lives.

Unity Rocks! MLK Day Event by RVRHS

In recognition of Martin Luther King Day 2021, students at Rancocas Valley Regional High School (RVRHS) in Mount Holly were invited to paint, color or draw a positive message of unity on a 3-5 inch rock and place the rock somewhere in Burlington County, NJ where others could find it. Click below to view the students' messages of unity, love and peace. The project is in conjunction with the Volunteer Center of Burlington County
