Staff Picks

Once a month, Chicago Cares staff members choose their favorite projects to share with our volunteers. We'll tell you what we think makes these projects so special and then you can sign up and see for yourself!

Of course, with more than 250 ongoing volunteer projects on our calendar each month, there are always plenty of ways for you to make a difference in Chicago!

June Staff Picks

Joyce  recommends Leader Training (Youth in Service leader training)
"Chicago Cares' Youth in Service department is gearing up to partner with One Summer Chicago, providing enrichment programming for thier participants.  We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to lead the many service projects we're planning for One Summer Chicago through July and August and commit to continue leading other youth service projects throughout the year.  Those with weekday morning and afternoon availability preferred."

Hot Projects are programs happening soon that still need additional volunteers. Programs listed in Hot Projects face cancellation without last-minute support from volunteers like you. When you Become a Member of the Chicago Cares community, we'll share a weekly email each Monday, informing you about upcoming events, Hot Projects, and how you can help us build a stronger Chicago!
