Become a Chicago Cares Volunteer

It's easy to get started making a difference through our ongoing programs.

  1. Create an account by registering here. Even if you had a username/password on our old site, you'll need to create a new account. If you use the email address you had on file, any existing volunteer history will link to your new account.
  2. Find an opportunity that's right for you by browsing location, issue area of interest, or dates.
  3. Sign up online by clicking the "sign up" button (please do not email the leader directly to sign up for a project).
