We Build Leaders.

NAAAP-Chicago is seeking volunteers to serve on our Annual Toy Drive Committee, a signature event that is part of our Community Service Program. Since its inception in 2003, our Annual Toy Drive has been a beacon of hope for the children's programs in the Chicago Asian American Pacific Islander community. This cherished tradition not only brings joy to countless families but also serves as a lifeline for many children from low-income households. For many of these young ones, the toy they receive during our event is the only new gift they'll receive all year. As we come together to fundraise and organize this event, our aim is clear: to make a lasting impact on the lives of these children and their families, ensuring they feel the warmth and generosity of our community during the holiday season. This is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable work experience for a career in Program Management by accomplishing independent tasks. We are looking for someone who is not only organized but also motivated. Someone who can complete tasks with little supervision and takes initiative. Someone who is comfortable with trying new things. Someone who can help us make our NAAAP brand one of high potential and make an impact in the Asian American community.

Volunteers must have familiarity with the Chicago area and suburbs as this program involves working with other nonprofit organizations in the Asian/Pacific Islander American Community. Volunteers play an active role in the planning, recruitment, securing sponsorships, and execution of community service events.

About NAAAP Community Service
NAAAP-Chicago prides itself in its community outreach and deep relationships with Asian/Pacific Islander American community organizations in the Chicago-land area. We participate in both short-term volunteer projects as well as host our own ongoing community initiatives and campaigns such as the Annual Toy Drive.

About NAAAP-Chicago
NAAAP-Chicago is led by committed volunteers dedicated to achieving the vision of inspiring leadership, cultivating professional development, and fostering workplace diversity. Our volunteer program is in itself a leadership program. It builds your communication, negotiation, and project management skills. It teaches you how to work well within a team, accountability, and patience. It provides the opportunity to expand your work experiences outside your current job as well as build your network with individuals from different professional backgrounds. On top of all that it offers you the chance to give back to the AAPI community.

We are looking for serious and real leaders who have passion and enthusiasm for positive and lasting change. Someone who wants to contribute and learn in a dynamic environment. Learn more about us at http://www.naaapchicago.org/
