The Lupus Society of Illinois (LSI) relies on the generosity of our volunteers to achieve our mission! If you have a desire to invest your time and talents in an organization that is having a positive impact on the lupus cause, we have just the place for you!
Below are activity areas where we could put your valuable talents to use. After reviewing the descriptions, please fill out our Volunteer Survey (below).
Contact Taurean Jackson or 312-542-0004 with any questions.
SUPPORT GROUP LEADER
Support Group Leaders facilitate and/or start support groups that provide resources, information and a sympathetic ear to those who have been affected by lupus. Training is available to those who are interested in starting a group.
Individuals are needed to help in our office with word processing, preparing mailings, proofreading, computer networking, and assisting in a variety of other clerical duties.
Frequently we hold conferences and fundraising benefits as part of the work of the LSI. We need individuals to plan events and activities. We also need people to staff the registration tables, sell raffle tickets, organize tag days, and a number of other onsite tasks.
HEALTH FAIR REPRESENTATIVES
Volunteers are needed to attend Health Fairs and other public events to display information, literature, and to answer questions.
The Advocacy Network ensures lupus concerns remain at the forefront of state and federal legislators. Advocacy Network Volunteers will educate legislators about lupus and our needs in Illinois.
The Speaker’s Bureau exists to help educate the general public about lupus. Training is offered and includes an overview of LSI educational materials, presentation styles, and even time to practice.
INDIVIDUAL PEER SUPPORT
Those living with lupus talk one-on-one with someone with a similar situation.
HOST YOUR OWN EVENT
Hosting your own fundraiser on behalf of the LSI is a great way to increase lupus awareness and raise funds for the foundation’s mission.
