Building on the Block!

Volunteers will equip R.A.G.E. (Resident Association of Greater Englewood) to do their critical civic engagement and public safety work, by helping to develop their space for greater use by the community. Volunteers will be doing this by focusing on variety of facilities focused work. Work will include light construction, painting rooms, creating murals, and other miscellaneous tasks. By doing this volunteers will be helping RAGE build out a space where they can break down barriers in communication and promote positivity through solution-based approaches.

  • This project is a short term 4 week program and your attendance will be critical to making sure that all the work we want done will get done.

  • We will be working mostly outside doing light construction projects and painting. Please wear closed toe shoes and clothing you don’t mind getting dirty.

  • Easy El access: Green Line

Partner: RAGE is a resident-driven association established to build relationships with fellow residents, Englewood’s public officials, business owners and organizations. RAGE has been a Chicago Cares partner since 2017 for this program. This is the only current program between Chicago Cares and RAGE.
