Volunteers are essential to the League of of Women Voters. Without volunteers, we would not be able to fulfill our mission. Here are some of our current volunteer opportunities.
If you don't see an exact fit for what you are looking for, reach out to League@lwvchicago.org. We'll try to match your interests with one of our committees or upcoming events.
What you can do:
Time Commitment: 1-2 hrs a month for meetings. Task timeframes will vary.
Next Steps: Attend an upcoming LWV Chicago committee meeting to learn more about committee tasks and volunteer opportunities. Check our calendar for the next discussion. RSVP or send additional questions to League@lwvchicago.org
