KidsMatter Volunteer Fair Aims to Match Teen Volunteers with Service Opportunities
The 10th annual KidsMatter Youth Volunteer Fair expects to connect 800+ enthusiastic students & families with 28 non-profits on Tuesday, October 2, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The Annual Youth Volunteer Fair for students in grades 6 through 12 will be held on Tuesday, October 2, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Naperville City Municipal Center, located at 400 South Eagle Street. Local non-profit organizations will be on hand to showcase their volunteer and advocacy opportunities, enabling students to find service venues that match their interests, major, career goals, and schedules. This free fair is open to students from all area middle and high schools, and is an ideal opportunity for youth groups from faith communities, scout troops and other youth organizations to choose their service projects.
Over 25 organizations who need youth volunteers in order to deliver their services will be participating in this year’s Fair. These are locally-based groups such as the American Cancer Society, Little Friends, Celebrate Differences, Gigi’s Playhouse, Turning Pointe Autism Foundation, Easter Seals, The Salvation Army, 360 Youth Services, Sharing Connections, the YMCA, The Morton Arboretum, Will County Forest Preserve, and the DuPage Children’s Museum. Each organization will have representatives on-hand to share the exciting opportunities they have for both students and families to positively impact the lives of other people.
