Volunteer opportunities are available for a variety of programs at every Outreach site. Whether you’re making a difference in the life of a child through tutoring, greeting our clients at the front desk or volunteering for a one-time special project, your time is a valuable investment in serving our community.

Outreach utilizes a thorough application and screening process to get to know our volunteers. In addition to completing an application, we ask permission to contact references and conduct a background check.

For more information please contact LaTanya Gatewood, volunteer coordinator, via email or by calling 630.682.1910.

I enjoy working with the students and sharing in their learning.
