From meal prep to residential maintenance, we could not function without the dedication of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, there are plenty of ways you can get involved at Boys Hope Girls Hope of Illinois. If you’re interested in one below, fill out our volunteer form so that we can learn more about you!

Academic Tutor

Scholars are assigned to a tutor with knowledge of his or her troubled subject and work together during study hall hours.

College Mentor

Help our Scholars prepare for college by assisting them with their personal statements, supplement essays, and application processes for college. (2-year commitment)

Life Mentor

Match with a Scholar and walk alongside them in their journey through navigating school, extracurriculars, relationships, and becoming a young adult. (4+ year commitment)

Service Committee

The Service Committee is a group who likes to role up their sleeves and see the impact of their work immediately – yard clean up; organizing holiday baskets for Scholars or dorm set-up baskets for rising college freshmen; refreshing a room in the houses with a clean coat of paint; organizing meals; and so much more! Join a committed, fun-loving team in making an immediate impact on the lives of our wonderful Scholars!


Our Scholars are very active kids participating in a variety of extracurriculars, and we can’t manage it all without you! Simply help us chauffer our Scholars to and from their activities.

Dinner Prep & Guests

Help us with meal time! You can either prepare and drop off, have food delivered, or better yet, prepare and join us for dinner! We love guests!

Life Skill Workshop

If you enjoy conducting engaging workshops geared toward young adults and their developmental needs, volunteer to be a presenter or facilitator where you can expand our Scholars’ awareness of an activity, hobby, career, or life skill you are passionate about!

Events Committee

Our events raise critical funds to support our Scholars and while raising these funds, we have fun! Our annual events include a golf outing – Drive Fore Hope – the last Monday of August; the gala – Evening of Hope – downtown in February/March; and a spring event that varies – wine tasting, pickleball, whatever the committee dreams up! We need new committee members with enthusiasm, fresh ideas, and who like to be part of a fun team to help us plan these wonderful events!
