Volunteer with JCFS Chicago and make a positive change in your community.

During National Volunteer Week we shine a light on the people that give their time, talent and voice to make a difference in the community.

We match your skills, availability and passions with our volunteer opportunities. Our projects range from once a year to once a week, from all across Chicago to the suburbs.

Please note: Volunteer opportunities are specific to the Greater Chicagoland area (Lake and Cook counties). 

Volunteers help others, while also enriching their own lives through:

  • Giving back and lending a helping hand
  • Exploring personal interests and passions
  • Meeting new people
  • Uncovering hidden skills and talents
  • Enriching one’s education and building a resume
