We all want to make a difference in the world. It’s part of how we are designed. At World Relief, we believe making a difference is a two-way street. Over the past 40+ years, we’ve been guiding people like you to volunteering in ways that make a lasting impact. You can bring your gifts, abilities and interests, and World Relief will help you connect and walk alongside families and individuals as they rebuild their lives in Chicagoland.
We are so excited to partner with you as you grow, learn, and make a difference through volunteering.
Note: Due to precautions around COVID-19, many of our volunteer opportunities are currently operating virtually and may vary by office location. While volunteering may look different, your involvement is needed now more than ever!
"It's really been wonderful for me to make friends with these women. We talk about other things too [such as] their jobs or what they're cooking for dinner, their culture."
-Melissa, World Relief Sewing Volunteer
“There's a big need for the English help that World Relief is providing...I enjoyed meeting people from different parts of the world and hearing their stories.”
