This Fall, we have a variety of ways for you to support Girls on the Run-Chicago as a volunteer. Click the links below to register today!
5K Kit Packing
Teams can opt to host a Site-Based 5K in their community, and to help Coaches make the events festive and special, we provide them with a 5K Kit. Volunteer duties may include assembling boxes, packing kits, and label-making. The time commitment could vary from 1-3 hours. Join us at our office (1415 N. Dayton St., Suite 112, Chicago, IL 60640) on any of the following date:
Wednesday, September 27, 1PM-4PM
Survey Data Entry
We are looking for volunteers to help us with a data entry project. Your role will include inputting survey data that has been collected via paper into our online system, so in order to participate, you must bring a laptop. The survey data is vital to improving Girls on the Run programming, as it is feedback from Fall 2023 program participants!
If you are able to make all 4 days or even just one your help will be appreciated. We will have snacks as well!
If you have questions, please feel free to email Zoe Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text her at 312-392-2586. Join us at our office (1415 N. Dayton St., Suite 112, Chicago, IL 60640) on any of the following dates:
