Community Volunteer Corps

Join Us to Keep Chicago Families Healthy

Lurie Children’s Community Volunteer Corps is a fun, flexible way for volunteers to share important public health messages with Chicago families. Each summer, volunteers participate in approximately 10 festivals and events in neighborhoods across the city by leading interactive games and sharing health education materials.

In 2017, we estimate that more than 3,000 kids stopped by our tents and tables, and had fun learning about vital health and safety topics.
