What we're about

Do you enjoy helping others? New in town? Like fun people who smile a lot? Has the rat race got you down? Want a calendar full of unique and fun things to do? TRY VOLUNTEERING!

Chicago Fun Volunteers is a unique & open forum thru which all altruistic activity within the area can be monitored. Join and help our large and active community of members keep tabs on opportunities in: Fests, Park Districts, UnitedWay, Food Pantries, Tutoring, Afterschool Programs, Local Cleanups, Senior Centers, Animal Shelters, and more... The unique MEETUP layout is ideal for this type of group concept since we've made it easy for ANY MEMBER TO POST volunteer events online, similar to putting up a flier in a coffee house for people to see. The difference here is that every Fun Volunteer in the Chicago area will see your event, all from the comfort of their homes...

This group's setup was made with you, the fun volunteer, in mind. Think of it as YOUR space, a "kiosk" on the web, where communication is expected for it to work. Feel free to post , organize, or discuss new ideas in the spirit of GOODWILL & FUN.
