Volunteer Opportunity #1

Volunteer Your Time

We love volunteers! Volunteers make a world of difference and can change lives, and have their lives changed in return. Working as a volunteer can be an enriching experience in a number of ways. No matter your skill level, there are many reasons to consider sharing your time and talents with the CNIP.

By sharing your time and skills with the CNIP, you will be helping others who care and are passionate about building and improving our neighborhood and community through a wide range of projects including fundraising, events, serving as a community advocate and more. Together we can make a difference on the South Side of Chicago.

Volunteer Opportunity #3

Advocacy and Legislation

Bringing Advocacy, Grassroots, and Legislation together for a greater impact. Whether serving as an advocating voice, a listening educator that learns community needs while helping to get the word out, or even providing research as a partner to search for grants and other funding for the CNIP, your time is greatly appreciated!

 

Legislative Work

You can customize your volunteer experience to match your skills and interests. The CNIP offers motivated individuals many opportunities to get involved. The CNIP has dedicated, and passionate people committed to making high-quality biking trails and better transit systems more accessible in the community. Together we can make this a reality by working with our legislators to help bring funding and resources to our South Side neighborhoods and the community.
