  • We welcome volunteers at our early learning centers serving children 6 months - 5 years. Two ways you can help are:

    > We could always use a hand with some light office work, too.
  • Participate in a landscaping and outside beautification project this spring at Easterseals Academy in Tinley Park.
  • Support our various special events throughout the year by becoming a corporate partner or volunteering.

  • Communicating with our families is a top priority. We’d appreciate help from talented individuals who are fluent in multiple languages.
