Volunteers are vital to the Center for Active Adults. Volunteerism is one of the easiest and best ways to become involved and the primary way many services are provided. Volunteers enjoy the many benefits of volunteering, including meeting new people, learning new skills, accomplishing projects and assisting behind the scenes with monthly parties and special events. If you would like to become a part of our volunteer team, please contact the Center office at 630.963.1314 between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm.
