Q: What does the Volunteer Center do?
Our mission at the Volunteer Center is to promote volunteerism by matching individuals with the perfect volunteer opportunity, connect volunteers to our network of non-profit organizations, as well as provide community agencies with essential resources in hopes of bettering our community by meeting local needs.
Q: Is the Volunteer Center in need of volunteers?
Yes, we are. In an effort to carry out our mission, the Volunteer Center holds a number of events throughout the year for which we are always looking for extra help on a variety of different projects. We also have volunteer clerical positions available as well as opportunities to serve on our Board of Directors. Click here to see how you can become part of our family.
Q: Is the Volunteer Center a part of Gloucester County College?
While the Volunteer Center is an independent non-profit organization, the Volunteer Center is graciously housed by the College. If you have a question about the college, such as admissions, grades and transcripts, GED courses or class schedules, please contact the college at 856-468-5000. For more information, please visit the GCC website.
Q: Can the Volunteer Center help me with my economic or personal problems?
Unfortunately, we cannot provide direct services. Our mission here at the Volunteer Center is to promote volunteerism in South Jersey and support the non-profit community. However, the Volunteer Center is able to refer you to one of our network non-profits (click here for a list), or visit the Heart of Gloucester County, a resource that will guide you through to find the help you need.
Q: Does it matter how old I am or what skills I have in order to volunteer?
Each volunteer opportunity is seeking a person with specific skill sets. Our goal at the Volunteer Center is to find the perfect match for each of our potential volunteers.
At the Volunteer Center, we believe there is a volunteer opportunity out there for everyone – a position that fits their needs perfectly. So while there may be an organization with an age restriction, we will work with each individual until we discover a volunteer position that is suitable for them.
