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.
Volunteer Hours lets us know how much time you have spent with a particular client or on a specific task. Volunteer time is valuable, and every effort helps!
Case Notes provide a way to communicate confidential information regarding an individual. CWS staff use this information to make sure refugee needs are met.
CWS volunteers help refugees with everything from navigating their new city to practicing for a job interview. If you are interested in volunteering with CWS, please complete a Volunteer Application and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org: Volunteer Application CWS Jersey City
CWS Jersey City hosts volunteer orientations to provide an overview of the refugee resettlement program and to describe current volunteer needs. Orientations are held in the CWS Jersey City office starting at 5:30 PM. Dates and links to RSVP for an orientation are listed below:
November 7, 2018 | RSVP
January 10, 2019 | RSVP
April 4, 2019 | RSVP
June 6, 2019 | RSVP
RSVPs are required to attend the orientation.
In addition to completing an orientation and the volunteer application, all CWS volunteers must complete a background check before starting their service, which will be initiated after attending an orientation.
CWS receives many requests, so we apologize in advance if there is a delay in our response. Priority is given to volunteers who are available during standard business hours.
