Ten Thousand Villages in Oak Park is a non-profit, fair trade store located in beautiful downtown Oak Park. We believe that volunteering with us allows you to give locally while impacting thousands of people globally.
Our mission is to help the artisans put a roof over their heads, food on their tables and put their children in school. We achieve this through our marketing and sales of fair trade goods.
Volunteer's benefits include:
- Improving the lives of marginalized artisans across the globe

- Working in a beautiful, stimulating environment
- Developing transferable job skills
- Enjoy participating in outside volunteer activities, and
- 20% Volunteer Discount - is a bonus! We will tell you more about it when you apply.
