Project: VISION is a small grassroots organization located in the Chinatown/Bridgeport community on the near south side of Chicago. We provide free after school programs such as tutoring, college and career readiness, service learning, and leadership activities to youth ages 12-18, who are primarily from lower income, first-generation immigrant families.
Since 2004, we've served over 500 community youth, but want to reach out to even more! To accomplish this, we are working to grow our fundraising efforts. We are seeking volunteers to serve as:
-Silent Auction Committee members (event in September 2017)
-Chinatown 5K Committee members (event on July 8, 2017)
-Small events committee members (various events)
Volunteers will serve on the committee alongside the organization's Board members, Associate Board members, and staff.
Useful experience/skills/traits include: fundraising, events planning, project management, and marketing
Time commitment varies depending on the project, but volunteers can expect to spend an average of 10-15 hours per month on meetings, communications (phone calls, emails etc), and other event coordination activities. The time requirement may increase closer to the event date.
