Volunteer Opportunity: Common Threads

Common Threads Needs Your Help!

If you enjoy working with children and appreciate learning about cultures from around the world then this will be a great opportunity for you to help fulfill Common Threads’ mission!!!

Common Threads is a Chicago based non-profit organization that educates children on the importance of nutrition, physical well-being and cultural diversity through cooking. Through the simple process of preparing and sharing a nutritious meal, children who participate in our programs learn to connect with their bodies, their neighbors, and their world in bite-sized lessons. And we need your help to assure that this experience is a safe, fun and an invigorating one for all!

Here’s a glimpse of what we do:

WHO: There are currently 875 children enrolled in our program, ages 8 to 12.

WHEN: Mondays through Thursdays during after school hours for 12 weeks.

WHERE: We are established in 12 sites in Chicago including Humboldt Park,
Englewood and Chinatown.

If you are interested in being a part of this wonderful experience while giving back to your community please contact Mary Ann at or at
312-752-2688. You can also check out our website: for more information!
