Newark Ambassadors

In tandem with our nonprofit partner, teams of volunteers led by a Jersey Cares Project Coordinator will gear up and stroll through the vibrant downtown district to promote the diverse arts and cultural offerings of Newark. Ambassadors help the public with directions, check-in with local businesses, and act as role models for good citizenship. With a friendly face, we share smiles, random acts of kindness, and information with those who live, play and work in Newark.‚Äč Join a team of volunteers who are passionate about Newark as a thriving community.
