What is Pass It Along exactly?
Pass It Along is a nonprofit organization based in Sparta, NJ, serving the northern New Jersey counties of Sussex, Morris, Essex and Warren. With over 200,000 hours served to date and over 14,000 people helped, we offer teens the tools to change the world while learning more about themselves in the process. It is our mission to build confident, compassionate and resilient teenagers through leadership, volunteerism and self-discovery.
Based on our three pillars of leadership, volunteerism and self-discovery, our programs empowers YOU to be the change in our community! We offer leadership programs, high schools clubs, volunteer opportunities and so much more.
Leadership: Recognizing the leadership potential in today’s young people, we provide opportunities for teenagers to learn about issues facing our communities and empowers them to plan, lead and participate in initiatives to bring about change. We currently offer two leadership programs open to ALL interested teens (goLEAD and Service Corps), and will be introducing two new programs this summer.
Volunteerism: At Pass It Along, we offer a wide variety of local, hands-on, meaningful opportunities that promote resiliency and self-esteem, and provide an outlet for diverse talents and interests for teenagers, as well as for people of all ages. Opportunities include: mentoring & youth enrichment, animals & environmental collections, arts and hunger & homelessness. We partner with over 20 nonprofit organizations to provide you access to these opportunities.
Self-Discovery - Self-Discovery, or the act or process of gaining knowledge or understanding of your abilities, character, and feelings, is a major component of helping teens discover who they are and how they can succeed. Here at Pass It Along, we strive to have every teenager find themselves and how they can use their talents to make a difference in the world. Programs include Discover Your Passion & Purpose and Get Connected.
