Updated: May 26, 2020. Chicago Cares’ commitment to volunteerism is unwavering. We will continue to amplify the critical work of Chicago’s community organizations, particularly those serving the south and west sides of our city, and we will continue to help you increase your engagement over time, setting you on a path from connection to education to action:

Chicago Cares is also thrilled to sell face masks!  Buy one for $20, and we'll donate one to senior residents of the Chicago Housing Authority.

Volunteering should be the start of a journey.

Chicago Cares empowers people to roll up their sleeves, connect across lines of difference, and learn about the challenges facing Chicago. Our volunteers work together to solve issues, and along the way, they build empathy, reduce their biases, and take deeper action to create equity in our city.

Our volunteer programs are intentionally designed to help you increase your involvement over time, setting you on a path from connection to education to action. Ready to get started?

 

 

SIGNATURE PROJECTS

 

Chicago Cares offers Signature Projects, a new opportunity for small groups to plug into long-term volunteer efforts that contribute directly to neighborhood revitalization plans. Your group of 5 to 15 volunteers will join forces with other groups to achieve more than what you could achieve on your own.
