Volunteer

Transform lives, neighborhoods, and our city

Our volunteers play a fundamental role in helping so many deserving students get the chance they need to succeed through college and after graduation. Be part of our community of people who believe that we can do better for our youth and who share in our mission and vision for the city. There are many ways to get involved.  Join the Chicago Scholars movement by volunteering or you can get involved with our various programming opportunities.
