Volunteer "Man-hunt"

Open Books carries out a variety of volunteer-driven literacy programs in Chicago Public Schools and in its bookstore all the time. As an organization, Open Books reaches everyone from infants through high school seniors, and maintains strong relationships with the passionate volunteer base that fuels the work. Currently, the store is searching for male role models to support its daytime literacy/mentorship program, understanding the power that a male mentor can have in a young person's life, as well as, to address the lower number of male volunteers on regular rotation.

Open Books always accepting applications for new female volunteers too!!
