Volunteer with Project YES!
Project YES! encourages members of the community to volunteer and be actively engaged in their community. One of our program’s goals is community strengthening. We believe, like Dr. MLK Jr., that “everybody can be great, because everybody can serve." AmeriCorps Project YES! recruits volunteers for member development trainings and workshops, service projects at the sites where members serve, and for Days of Service. Volunteers must be 18 years or older.
How to Get Involved
Global Youth Service Day is the largest service event in the world and the only one that celebrates the contributions that children and youth make 365 days a year. Every year, AmeriCorps Project YES! hosts an Ultimate Field Day at Pulaski Park, Children participate in fun sports, games, activities and more in the goal of developing healthier lifestyles. Volunteers are needed to help run the sports, games, and activities. For more information about Global Youth Service Day, please visit ysa.org.
Seeds of Service is a community gardening project that AmeriCorps Project YES! hosts every year in Humboldt Park with 7-9 community gardens. The goal is to raise awareness about the importance of community gardening. Volunteers will weed, mulch, build garden beds, and more to get the gardens ready for planting season.
*Registration for events will be posted when members begin to plan the projects.
