CORPORATE PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM
Recent history has posed many unique and evolving challenges to our communities. Food insecurity, student learning gaps, mental health issues, environmental crises, global pandemics, and other challenges have negatively impacted the quality of life for individuals and families across the world. To address these pressing issues, the Volunteer Center of South Jersey has partnered with Jersey Cares, to bring their Corporate Service Program to Southern Jersey/Philadelphia Metro region.
The Jersey Cares Corporate Service Program provides our partners with tailored community service opportunities. Companies benefit from individualized corporate volunteer initiatives designed expressly for their employees and created specifically to accommodate their needs and schedules, while addressing community-identified needs. The Jersey Cares Team can help you make volunteering seamless and meaningful for your employees.
Understanding that volunteerism is not “one size fits all, ” Jersey Cares will craft volunteer programs around your company’s impact pillars and your employees’ interests, all while meeting the needs of our community partners. Examples of Jersey Cares corporate programs and opportunities include:
IN-PERSON VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Jersey Cares partners with hundreds of nonprofit organizations to engage corporate volunteers in meaningful projects that create enriching environments in which students can learn, help vulnerable communities access fresh food, provide essential items to individuals experiencing homelessness, promote environmental sustainability, and much more. Jersey Cares makes it easy to volunteer, managing all project details from start to finish. This includes identifying project tasks, providing all project supplies, and leading volunteers on the day of the project.
VIRTUAL & REMOTE VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
The demand for virtual and remote volunteerism has grown exponentially since the onset of the pandemic. Jersey Cares has developed a wide variety of nationally praised virtual volunteer programs that benefit communities globally and locally. This includes opportunities such as:
- Virtual Workshops with Students – Using video conferencing platforms, corporate volunteers host live interactive workshops with students. These workshops provide students with an immersive experience alongside real-world professionals while gaining deeper understanding of topics ranging from STEM education to financial literacy.
- At-Home Kit Assembly – Looking for an opportunity to get a little more hands-on, but remain virtual and still meet community-identified needs? Jersey Cares offers a selection of “kit-assembly” volunteer projects that can be conducted from home. Supplies and instructions are sent directly to your team members' homes and completed individually or as part of a virtual event.
- Virtual Team Building Programs – Tired of the same old virtual team meetings? With virtual volunteer activities that encourage teamwork and foster collaboration, you can turn any virtual meeting into an opportunity to build your team and strengthen your community.
CUSTOM COLLECTION DRIVES
Jersey Cares partners with hundreds of nonprofit and community organizations whose clients are desperately in need of essential items such as school supplies, toiletries, clothing, food, and more. Through Custom Collection Drives, Jersey Cares will match corporate volunteer groups with community organizations in need of donations. Jersey Cares will work with community partner organizations to determine a catered list of their most needed donations and provide corporate volunteers with instructions and materials necessary to conduct a successful collection drive, virtually and/or in-person.
