There are many ways to volunteer with the Neighbor Network! Please email email@example.com with any questions.
Precinct Partners is a program where neighbors represent each “precinct” of the ward and come together to improve our ward, one block at a time. We have been holding Saturday meetings to connect as neighbors and discuss the ways in which we would like to see our community grow. Precinct Partners support the ward through regular ward surveys and by helping to plan and execute special community projects and events. Interested in learning more? Sign up here!
Front Desk at the Ward Office
Volunteers provide valuable constituent service assistance for 40th Ward residents who call the office during regular hours (Monday 10a-7p, Tuesday – Thursday 10a-5p, Friday 10a-3p). Help 40th Ward staff by answering calls and generating service requests. Volunteers undergo a brief training and shifts are 2-3 hours. This is an ideal opportunity for someone seeking a regular volunteering commitment.
Help make wellness calls to 40th Ward seniors on Sundays. Volunteers check in with seniors, initiate service requests, and direct folks to additional resources as needed.
Field team volunteers cover a lot of ground because they are “in the field” for the Neighbor Network. There are three primary types of field team opportunities:
· Regularly scheduled, ongoing initiatives such as Shovel Squad (Sign up : bit.ly/Snow-Shovel-Squad) or ward surveying
· Event-specific such as flyering and clean up events.
