As a nonprofit organization, BBF Family Services depends on volunteers as a vital part of our team. Our volunteers bring fresh ideas, energy, and support to special events and our out-of-school time programs. By joining the BBF Family Services team, you become part of an organization that has been making a positive impact on North Lawndale’s youth since 1961. We seek creative, smart, caring individuals to help further our mission and unlock the potential of the youth and families we serve. We offer a range of volunteer opportunities for adults of all ages.
