Hello all,
Just wondering if anyone is familiar with any volunteer opportunities in the Edgewater/Andersonville area. I'm looking for locations that are accessible by public transportation.

Thanks you.

  • Rachel D. just hungry

    Chicagoland Methodist Senior Services has several locations (each with different patients/residents) that offer volunteer positions, worth a shot if that's the kind of volunteer work you are seeking!

  • http://www.volunteermatch.org/ and http://www.chicagocares.org/HOC__Affiliate_Home_Page both let you sort by type of volunteer work you're looking for and location.

  • Care for Real!

    Thanks everyone for the info! The community service is for a class of mine. I have to complete a few hrs before the semester is over. Does the Edgewater/Andersonville area have any soup kitchens?

    Nat - check out Inspiration Corporation (my link above). I think you will find what you are looking for

    I second the previous comments to check out Care for Real. They keep their Administrative costs low by depending on a large group of volunteers: http://edgevillebuzz.com/news/5-questions-lyle-allen-care-for-real

    Also try Chicago Cares www.chicagocares.org They post a calendar of volunteer opportunities for all differents kinds of organization all over the city. There is always something.

  • Inspired Youth tutoring can always use extra tutors, especially as the school year draws to a close. They meet at the Brezazian Library just off the Argyle stop. http://www.inspiredyouthchicago.org/
