How Do I Volunteer?

At Waukegan Township, we believe that people can be the answer to the pressing needs that face our community. It is through volunteers that we are able to provide low-cost and free programs, services and activities to those within our community.

It can be as simple as answering the phone, running the Corner Gift Shoppe, assisting a child with homework or a reading assignment or promoting the services that Waukegan Township provides through one of the various community-wide events that we participate each year.

We are constantly on the lookout for outstanding community residents who can spare an hour, a week or a month of your time.
