Helping others is infectious.

This volunteer opportunity is currently on hold. We are in the process of reinventing this program.

NCJW/Essex VolunTeens help at the Boys and Girls Club of West Orange, which runs an after-school program at the Gregory School in West Orange. The Teens will help students, ages K-5, with homework for the first 1/2 hour and then do everything from play in the computer lab, indoor gym, arts & crafts room, etc., for the remainder of the afternoon program. Parents are responsible for transportation. There are two sessions, Fall and Spring. Teens will be able to set their own volunteer schedules.  Teens are asked to sign up for a minimum of eight volunteer slots (Monday – Thursday 3:45-4:45).  They will have the option of being sent text and/or email reminders.

Register online for the 2019-2020 VolunTeens. Participation fee is $25 for children of NCJW/Essex members and $45 for non-members.

Choice of afternoons (Mon-Thurs), 3:45 pm – 4:45 pm
After registering for the program on our website, you will be sent an email invitation from Sign Up Genius where your teen will select the volunteer days that work best for his or her schedule.
