Current volunteers

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. You can report your volunteer hours here, and use this form to record case notes after completing an activity with a CWS client. Thank you for your assistance!
