Youth Volunteer Opportunities

Enrich your life as you enrich the lives of others.

George Columbus headshot
Hello!  My name is George Columbus, and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for Cantata Adult Life Services.

If you'd like to speak with me about Cantata's Volunteer Opportunities, please call me at 708-387-8366 or contact me via email at george.columbus@cantata.org.  I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Volunteering pays in so many ways. While you don't make money, you do make a lasting difference in the lives of those you serve, and in your life as well. It's a great way to fulfill internship or service hour obligations for church, school or scouts and you'll make new friends. And, volunteering pays on your resume because it reveals a selfless, caring, "team player" aspect to your character that employers value. In fact, a recent study tells us that:

  • 73% of employers would recruit a candidate with volunteering experience over one without.
  • 94% percent of employees who volunteered to learn new skills had benefited either by getting their first job, improving their salary or being promoted.
  • 94% of employers believe that volunteering can add to skills.

Am I a good fit?

Cantata attracts people who like people. That positivity is first and foremost. Beyond that, we look for volunteers who are enthusiastic, compassionate, with a variety of backgrounds and experience to draw from. If this sounds like you, we're eager to talk.
