• 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.

  • Battleship New Jersey Memorial & Museum

    Battleship New Jersey Memorial & Museum needs volunteer tour guides (18+) for weekend, weekday, and evening events.  Tour guides lead individual and group tours, work with veterans and youth groups, chaperone overnight encampments, and serve as guest lecturers throughout the tri-state area.  Also, restoration and clerical support opportunities.  No previous military experience required.
