A woman is volunteering her time to teach people sign language.


Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with Chicago Hearing Society. Becoming a volunteer will allow you to use your talents to make a positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities.

Please note that at this time we are limiting our number of volunteers at CHS. Your patience is very much appreciated.

All volunteer applicants are required to go through a background check prior to being accepted as a volunteer.

For group projects, we kindly request a $500 minimum donation to Chicago Hearing Society on behalf of your organization to help offset staff time spend with your group.

Please fill out the form and our volunteer coordinator will contact you when a volunteer opportunity becomes available.
