MHAGC is a terrific organization that helps kids deal with the tough times in their lives...we need YOU to help us make an impact. We need you if you are enthusiastic and are willing to give us a few contiguous hours on two VIRTUAL evening phone-a-thons this December. TOTAL 3 HOURS EACH EVENING FROM 5-8 OR AS MUCH TIME AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER. WE ARE OPEN.
You will be calling potential donors and asking them to donate by going to our website or texting to donate. The goal is to raise $25,000 during these two events. We will live stream the event and have fun at the same time with several activities.
FUN, ACTIVITIES, PRIZES AND HOPEFULLY A LOT OF BELL RINGING AS THE DONATIONS COME IN.

VISION The Mental Health Association of Greater Chicago is working to ensure that all members of our community have the opportunity to live full lives, free from the stigma and prejudice associated with mental health issues. We strive to empower individuals to maintain and improve their mental health; while giving people with the tools necessary to identify situations in which they should seek help for themselves or someone close to them.
Welcome to the MHAGC volunteer page!
Thank you for considering MHAGC; we are delighted that are you interested in learning more about us and what we do. Volunteers form the core of our organization. We believe that volunteers are front and central to our success as we work to expand our reach and realize our vision. Please see www.mhagcusa.org or call us for more information about us, our programs and/or services.
There are a number of steps involved in becoming volunteer:
1) Select a volunteer position! 2) After reviewing your request, we will reach out to you by email to begin the process. Please attach your resume. 3) If you are a good match for a position, you will be invited to come into the MHAGC office for an introductory meeting or to schedule a time to talk on the phone. 4) The volunteer packet will be presented, reviewed and signed. As some of our programs contain information and content that is proprietary, you may be asked to complete a confidentiality and conflict of interest agreement. 5) Volunteering can begin!
Please note: MHAGC volunteer positions focus on leadership, outreach, fundraising, and administration. Other than the support group roles (still in development) we cannot offer volunteer positions that have direct contact with individuals with mental illness or mental health related issues.
