Join Taiwanese American Professionals in Chicago for a day of volunteer work with the children at Asian Youth Services (AYS), a non-profit organization that supports low-income children and youth. Volunteers will be paired up with children from AYS and do anything from helping with homework and developing reading skills to playing basketball and socializing. While the responsibilities are flexible and can be tailored to the volunteer, this is an opportunity to spend quality time with at-risk youth who may otherwise have limited exposure with positive role models and to support an underfunded local non-profit.
Originally founded to support children of South East Asian refugees families escaping from genocide or oppression, AYS has now expanded to serve children from all low-income families in the Albany Park neighborhood. AYS only has 1 full-time employee and relies on volunteers like us to provide essential services to children, so your time this day will be greatly appreciated by the community and the children.
Requirement: All volunteers MUST arrive on time at 11:00am for orientation
Cost: Free. But please pre-register on WePay (https://www.wepay.com/events/tapays) so we know how many volunteers we have.
