About

Quixote Quest is a teen volunteer organization for dedicated high school students who want to make a difference in someone’s life. Quixote Quest has five chapters in South and Central New Jersey (Mercer, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, & Middlesex Counties).

Quixote Quest members volunteer with projects meant to change the direction or quality of someone’s life. Some of our projects include: mentoring an economically disadvantaged child, providing therapeutic intervention for a child with a disability, recording the life stories of elders, caring and finding homes for abandoned animals, and providing education about dating violence and how to stay safe.

Quixote Quest is:

  • A commitment to volunteering at least 2 hours per week for the duration of the school year.
  • A commitment to attend twice-monthly gatherings for QQ members.
  • An investment of your time and your heart in serving your community.
  • A volunteer experience that allows teens to make a positive impact on the lives of others.
  • A community for teens who are passionate about making a difference.
  • A chance to join a twelve-year tradition of service and become part of the legacy of more than 600 QQ teens who have dedicated themselves to serving communities in South NJ.
  • Possibly the best thing you will do in high school!

Quixote Quest is not:

  • A short-term volunteer opportunity.
  • A low-commitment volunteer opportunity.
  • Merely an opportunity to log required volunteer hours. QQ requires a commitment of the heart not just time.
  • Merely an opportunity to build a college resume. The service that Qrew members do is more than a bullet point on a resume; it is changing someone’s life.
  • A one-time project like painting or gardening.
  • An experience that could soon be forgotten.
  • An average volunteer experience that a high school student would encounter.
If Quixote Quest seems like a good fit for you, contact us at quixotequest@centerffs.org, and we will inform you of the next steps! You will receive more information about Quixote Quest, and we will invite you and your parent to discuss QQ so that you understand how it works before you make the commitment to volunteer!
