Volunteer as a Guardian

We are a volunteer based organization so we are always in need of caring and compassionate people willing to give of their time by becoming someone’s guardian. When you volunteer to serve as a guardian, you will receive:

  • high quality education through our Center for Guardianship Studies about what it means to be a guardian and
  • how to function in that important fiduciary role
  • You will also be supported by our network of professionals in the legal. medical, financial and social services fields who stand ready and willing to help guide you in the decision making process.

You will never be left alone!

If you are interested in volunteering, please download and complete the volunteer application, and return in to the address listed on the application.

Volunteer with Our Board of Trustees

As a volunteer based organization, we also look from time to time for community minded individuals to assist us in our governance. Individuals with talents in legal, social services, fundraising, finances, advertising, etc. are invited to consider serving on our board or on sub-committees within our board. If you are interested, please send us a brief resume indicating your interests and how you might be interested in serving our community.

There is a unique aspect of human nature that allows us to sympathize with those less fortunate than we are. A rarer quality of human nature is the ability to empathize with the downtrodden, to put ourselves in their place, to walk in their shoes. All the volunteers a Volunteer Guardianship One on One share that singular quality. – Rolf Margeau, Volunteer Guardian

Attend an Event

We plan two fund raising events each year, a gala celebration in the spring, and a less formal, country style dinner and auction in the fall. This year our barn dance will be held at the Clinton Elks Lodge in Pittstown, NJ on September 30 - hope to see you there!
