CWS Jersey City hosts regular volunteer orientations to provide an overview of the refugee resettlement program and to describe current volunteer needs. Volunteer orientations will resume in 2018, so check back for updated information!
CWS receives many requests, so we apologize in advance if there is a delay in our response.Most individual volunteer opportunities are during business hours. All volunteers are required to go through a screening and interview process that includes a background check.
See our Wish List on Amazon for items we are currently accepting. Due to the decrease in refugee arrivals, CWS Jersey City is not accepting donations of items such as furniture or household items. Financial donations or gift cards are always welcome.
CWS Jersey City greatly appreciates how much work volunteers do to help make refugees welcome in their community. In order to capture the efforts of all of the volunteers in our community, we have created some simple forms.
