In our Community-Based program, volunteers are matched one-to-one with a child between the ages of 7-14. The volunteer will pick up the little from their home, and take them out into the community to do fun activities that will help to expand the child's worldview. You can decide on your outings together based on your interests and personalities. Outings often include things like: visiting a museum, going to a Bulls game, running a race, having dinner at a new restaurant, playing catch at the park, or baking cookies.
