Volunteer Center has been providing support to companies with employee
volunteer programs since the early 1980s.
In 2000, the Northern New Jersey Business Volunteer Council was created
to bring the business community together to address pressing issues like
hunger, literacy and education through collective efforts. In 13 years, the Business Volunteer Council
collected and distributed more than $1.4 million in resources to low-income
children and their families.
realities of the last five years have changed the way that many companies are
approaching their community engagement activities. To provide more and better service, the
Volunteer Center has launched Business Volunteer Connect, which provides
consultation to companies on everything connected to employee volunteering and
community engagement. Services include
customized volunteer projects, guidance and expertise on creating or enhancing
an employee volunteer program, assistance with skills-based volunteering, and
board service, and participation in several annual volunteer initiatives.

practices, the BVC continues to provide leadership in meeting community needs
through employee volunteerism.
