As Asthma Vans travel across the city of Chicago providing care to low-income children, the small staff relies on the effort of volunteers to widen our impact in the community.
Most of our volunteer opportunities are suited for people who are consistently willing to carve out a few hours to make a difference. As such, in order to join our volunteer group, most opportunities require an individual to do the following:
Work one shift either weekly or bi-weekly, either 9am-noon or 1pm-4pm, any day Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).
Make at least a 3 month commitment. Many of the things we ask volunteers to do require training and on-going communication with families.
Be able to provide their own transportation. Though many volunteers work in conjunction with a school close to their home, and therefore don’t have to worry about this as much, our office and some sites we work with require an individual to own a vehicle or know how to navigate public transit.
If you are in a position to volunteer, we look forward to hearing from you! Take a look at our current volunteer positions.
