To meet local needs, the Volunteer Center of South Jersey builds partnerships with other agencies.
Volunteer Generation Fund
In 2017, the Volunteer Center of South Jersey joined the first cohort of this funding in New Jersey. Led by the New Jersey Commission on National and Community Service and the Governor's Office on Volunteerism, this collaborative partnership set out to not only increase volunteerism in the State, but make sure we were all being counted in an effort to move up from our 47th place ranking in the US.
Other partners in this effort include the Volunteer Center of Burlington County, United Way of Northern New Jersey, Campus Compact New Jersey, and New Start Career Network (Rutgers University).
The Family Strengthening Network
The Family Strengthening Network empowers families to achieve their dreams and be successful in all areas of life. Through free, personal and confidential sessions with a trained family advocate, families develop a clear plan to accomplish their goals and receive all the tools, resources and opportunities necessary to complete their plan. FSN offers educational seminars and small groups in a variety of areas that are critical to the well-being of the family. FSN also provides family fun events and community volunteering opportunities that reinforce the bonds within families. For more information about FSN, click here.
