ChicagoCAC has several volunteer opportunities available throughout the year. Due to the confidential nature of our work, volunteer opportunities that offer direct contact with our children and families are limited. Volunteers who do have direct contact with clients or frequent access to the center must undergo background checks. Below is a list of available volunteer opportunities.
Multiple 3-hour shifts per month
Child life volunteers care for children who come to the center while they are waiting for medical exams, forensic interviews, mental health therapy or other services. Volunteers work in the playroom or mental health waiting area to ensure the comfort and safety of children by facilitating play, responding to children’s needs and communicating any concerns to an appropriate staff member.
