Chicago Cares Volunteer Opportunities
Chicago Cares designs volunteer opportunities with you in mind. Each program is created by our staff to meet a community need and involve hands-on work (no office work or fundraising) and each program is led by a trained volunteer leader who knows what needs to be done and how - so you don't have to. Our offerings are flexible; you serve when you have time and inclination. Each program involves at least four volunteers, which means you are never alone and will always make a new friend.
