A collaboration between the Skokie Community Leaders Network and the Skokie Public Library, Skokie Serves was developed in 2011 to connect volunteers with volunteer opportunities. Participating organizations were able to post available opportunities to the free online directory for individuals to browse for and apply to. Skokie Serves served the community for nearly 5 years by supporting community services and promoting volunteerism.
Although Skokie Serves was retired in 2016, the spirit of volunteerism is still alive on SkokieWiki. By utilizing the "volunteer opportunities" tag when editing or searching for content volunteers and opportunities are easily connected. The Guide for Non-Profits is a great resource to get started.
