NOTE: We are offering Online Orientation. We are currently looking for local volunteers that can jump into future face-to-face visits.

New Star serves over 650 children and adults each day whose lives are impacted by mild to profound disabilities. Our service area reaches those living in and around the Chicagoland area and Northwest Indiana. New Star has openings for people who are passionate about helping those we serve to create meaningful days, productive years, and, ultimately, more fulfilling lives.

Here are just a few ways you can make a difference:
Card writing
Zoom game events
Help build job skills (i.e., interview practice)
Online social visits that will transition to in-person
Administrative help

Match your skills, interest, and experience with others.

We also have a Junior Ambassador Program for Teens 8th-12th grade.
