Volunteers in the drop-in center groups help plan and facilitate programming for LGBTQ youth across a 5 county area in north central IL, including two drop-in centers specific to the needs of trans and gender expansive youth. Volunteers may also get involved in community education/networking and supporting the youth leadership and HIV prevention programs. Volunteers with appropriate skills and interests may choose to work with the parent group.
Drop in centers operate weekly in Naperville, Aurora, DeKalb, Palatine, Ottawa and Sterling. Our Geneva drop in center runs twice per month. New volunteers are welcome at all sites, with special emphasis for the spring volunteer training on the growing DeKalb, Palatine, Ottawa and Sterling locations.
