Volunteer

Your gift of time as a volunteer will impact the lives of our children.

There are several ways that you can volunteer at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls:

Mentor   Mentoring friendsMercy Home’s Friends First mentoring program matches adults one-on-one with children from the Chicago area who could benefit from having a positive friendship with an adult role model. Spend a few hours a month engaged in fun, meaningful activities with a young person who can use a friend.

Tutor   Participate in community service by spending an hour a week during the school year providing extra support and encouragement to young people living at Mercy Home. Help keep kids focused on homework and the importance of education. To request information on becoming a volunteer mentor or tutor, click here.
