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 can choose from around 15 different festivals and events in neighborhoods across the city -- leading interactive games and sharing health education materials with community members*.
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
