Want to get involved?
Our local League depends on volunteers for everything we do. Right now we have volunteer opportunities for:

  • Office volunteers- Just a few hours each month.
  • Experienced Zoom hosts for webinars and large meetings.
  • We also need support in the areas of membership and communications.

If interested please contact, by email, the office or Jennifer O'Neil.

Other ways to help

  • One-time event assistance (e.g., help at a luncheon registration table, holiday reception, holiday gift wrapping, 4th of July parade, Farmers Market outreach, etc.)
  • Office volunteer (One week/month or less: spend about an hour checking voicemail, email, and office mail)
  • Drinks and Dialogue (help plan one or more of our quarterly social gatherings)
  • This Is Evanston – help revise LWVE’s guide to city government/Evanston history​
