<b>OUR SEARCH FOR EXCEPTIONAL PEOPLE:</b>
We're on the search for exceptional people to help fulfill our mission to educate, empower, and lead our young people. We create enrichment programs, which primarily address issues of the youth between age 4-24. We lead our youth by encouraging them to take action, while having them assist in executing our programs. In result, we strengthen their leadership and community organizing skills in the process.

Volunteering with The Gem Project is very unique. We work through different sites across the New Jersey area like libraries, schools, and youth centers to host our programs and events. You don't have to be based in New Jersey to volunteer! We have a system where volunteers can provide their services remotely.

<u>Requirements:</u><br><ul>
<li>Volunteers must be able to commit to in-person meetings with our staff on a monthly basis for training, feedback or socials. <u>Out-of-state</u> volunteers must be able to commit to an online conference meeting or video chat instead.

<li>Must be passionate about serving youth and young adults in becoming worldly leaders.
