Volunteer Opportunities

All of our volunteer positions are non-clinical and most openings are located at our Mountainside, New Brunswick and Toms River facilities. A small number of positions are available at our outpatient centers including Bayonne, Clifton, Egg Harbor, Hamilton, Newark, New Brunswick, Toms River and Warren. We accept volunteer applications on an ongoing basis throughout the year. All volunteer applicants must be at least 15-years-old. We also require a commitment of a minimum of 30 hours of volunteer service per year. Please contact the Volunteer Department with all questions.

Available Opportunities

Corporate Volunteer Opportunities

Bing a part of a community means doing more than what is expected…and there is no better feeling than knowing you are helping children. We need and appreciate corporate volunteers and the energy and enthusiasm they lend to our cause.

Our community engagement program provides a unique opportunity for your company to give back to the community. Each activity requires a minimum donation which covers the cost of your materials for the day and allows your group to designate how any remaining funds will be used. You and your team will jump right in and see first-hand how your generosity makes a difference.

Corporate Service Days must be planned a minimum of three weeks in advance. If your organization would like to schedule for a specific date, please plan six months in advance to secure availability. Email Sara Mapes for more information or complete the online application.

  • When Aiden Shanklin was 9 months old, his mother, Nicole, noticed that he wasn't developing like other children his age. He had very little head support, no trunk control, and when she would go to lift him it felt as if she were picking up a rag doll.
