Lurie Children’s Community Volunteer Corps is a fun, flexible way for volunteers to share important public health messages with Chicago families. This summer, volunteers can choose from 15 different festivals and events in neighborhoods across the city by leading interactive games and sharing health education materials.
In 2019, we estimate that more than 5,000 kids stopped by our tents and tables, and had fun learning about vital health and safety topics.
Volunteers must be 18 years or older. Participation requirements include:
Completing an application, telephone interview, and background check
Participating in a kick-off meeting (if your schedule permits)
Completing brief online training
Committing to volunteer with us for at least one event during the summer
Applications for the 2020 Community Volunteer Corps are open now through June 30. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance after March 15th within 5-7 business days of their application being accepted.
