Jersey Cares Summer Leadership Program

We are incredibly excited to begin this new program for individuals like you. At Jersey Cares we have over 200 projects per month in a variety of different impact areas. We utilize individuals like you to assist in the management of these projects.


Project Coordinators (PCs) provide leadership and ensure a positive volunteer experience for all of the Jersey Cares Monthly Calendar Projects.  As a Project Coordinator you will have the opportunity to develop relationships with agency representatives, gain project management and leadership skills, and network at various Jersey Cares events and trainings with other members of the PC Team.  Additionally, you will become a key member of a strong network of volunteers, agencies, and Jersey Cares affiliations.


The program runs for ten weeks from May 28th to August 8th during which you will accumulate a minimum of 25 hours of hands on experience as a Project Coordinator with Jersey Cares. The benefits you will receive include management experience, networking opportunities, multiple trainings, and at completion of the program, you will receive a formal letter of recommendation from Jersey Cares for use with all future employers.


We are offering four Orientation options- at least one must be attended in order to be a part of the program.  Please click the link: and register for the date most convenient for you. You will receive a confirmation e-mail once you have registered. We hope to see you in May!
