Village of Glendale Heights
Volunteer Initiative Program
VIP LogoVolunteers have long been an invaluable resource to our community, and every minute of their dedication counts! However, changing workforce demographics and busy schedules requires a change in the way we think about volunteerism. The Mayor's office launched a Volunteer Initiative Program (VIP) to revamp our connections with community volunteers and promote new ways of enhancing the volunteer experience for all ages. The goal of the VIP is to provide varied and flexible opportunities designed with the busy household in mind.

Whether you are interested in giving an hour or seeking a long-term volunteer experience, we will work closely with you to find a match to your interests. To get started, download the VIP Volunteer Interest Form, and once completed, please email the form to nicole_lewis@glendaleheights.org.

If you have any questions, or would like more information please contact Nicole Lewis at 630.909.5327.
