Community Partner Managed Programming

Below are opportunities for volunteering directly with our community partners.


Chicago Cares mobilizes volunteers to build a stronger, more unified Chicago. We create more than 200 monthly volunteer opportunities in partnership with nonprofits across Chicago. And we also offer referral opportunities to organizations that have the capacity to build and manage their own programming, but are in search of volunteers to help them execute. 

Below are referral opportunities* in the different issue areas from some of our trusted community partners.  Please click on a link before to see what opportunities there are.  If any are of interest, you can take it from here and reach out to these organizations!

Chicago Cares does not manage the volunteer experience for these projects, and volunteers are subject to each partner organization's volunteer protocol. Chicago Cares is not liable for injuries, loss or damage suffered at referral projects.
