New Beginnings is a battered women’s shelter located in Newark. Student volunteers who work here spend time with children while their mothers attend support groups, court hearings, or other appointments in order to rebuild their lives. Volunteers also take children to activities on the weekends, such as bowling, swimming, or a local park. It's been said that if you want to change the world, make a difference in the life of a child. Volunteering at New Beginnings gives us the opportunity to model good behavior to these children. Volunteers should have lots of patience, and be enthusiastic about playing with children. We are also always looking for male volunteers to model positive behaviors to young boys who often times do not have other positive male role models.
