Volunteer Opportunities with Chicago Market - A Community Co-op

volunteers.jpg 

Creating a co-op takes energy, commitment and creativity. From our elected Board of Directors to dozens and dozens of like-minded supporters, Chicago Market's volunteers are working hard to make our vision and our store a reality.
We've got volunteer needs from ongoing teams to ad-hoc events; in-person or at-home projects; strategy work or just hittin' the streets. Take a look and sign up here - or let us know if you'd like to get involved but you're not sure where to start.

 

GENERAL MANAGER SEARCH 
Do you have experience in grocery or co-op management, or in hiring/human services? A small team is working to define the job description and search strategies for our eventual General Manager and we'd highly value your participation.

SOCIAL & EVENT PLANNING: ongoing or single projects
Someone with a good sense of community venues, e.g. libraries, restaurants, churches, theaters, etc. Persistently reach out to, follow up with these and help our MORE (Marketing/Owner Recruiting/Engagement/Events) team by coordinating logistics for meetings and events. Recent examples: dinner @ Kal'ish restaurant, film screening @ REI, Lena Rose Salon beauty night, monthly Owner Meet-Ups at local bars & coffee joints.

STREET TEAM: ongoing or single projects
Hang posters around our trade area. Will provide posters and tape, and can narrow down to a specific area. Flexible timing, though best during common business hours (daytime hours). Must be able and comfortable to visit businesses on foot and talk with employees.

"ON CALL" EVENT HELP: ad-hoc projects
We're often short on team members who can cover simple but time-specific tasks such as making phone calls, visiting potential spaces or partners, delivering or distributing materials. Patience, reachability and a flexible schedule are the only requirements!
