Volunteers are integral to the success of the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago and serve in a variety of ways, including special events, office support, and at Savers stores. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the volunteer application. An EFGC staff member will reach out to you within a week of your application submission.

Interested in volunteering outside of the city of Chicago? Become a Community Volunteer!

Community Volunteers are the first line of contact for many of the communities we serve. The Community Volunteer’s objective is to help people with epilepsy live their everyday lives through advocacy and education in their own community. We currently have three Community Volunteer groups serving their communities in the Northwest Suburbs, Southern Suburbs, and Western Suburbs.
