We're looking for enthusiastic, friendly volunteers to spend time with our youth at our booth at the Printers Row Farmers Market (Dearborn & Polk.)

Volunteers are needed for either 8:30-10:30 am or 10:30-12:30 on Saturdays from June 12 - September 25. You can sign up for as few as 1 shift, or as many shifts as you like.

Young adults between the ages of 16 & 24 enroll in our 12-week job training program at Blue Sky Bakery & Cafe. There they learn to make a wide array of pastries, which we then sell at various venues, including Chicago Farmers Markets.

Volunteers are expected to assist youth with making change & providing customer service, and help introduce Blue Sky Bakery to the community. More information about our organization is available at blue-sky-bakery.org.

The Blue Sky Employment Program provides homeless and at-risk youth with twelve weeks of paid, supportive employment at Blue Sky Bakery & Café. Youth gain valuable experience in cooking, baking, maintaining a sanitary work environment, delivering catering orders, customer service and cash-handling.

Youth meet each week with our staff to address issues such as professional communication, time management, conflict resolution, and diversity. They also receive assistance updating their resumes, practicing interview skills and seeking long-term employment.
