Become a Volunteer


The National Multiple Sclerosis Society depends on the commitment of volunteers at every level of the organization. As one of the nation’s best voluntary health agencies, the Society embraces, values and recognizes the work of our volunteers. We can’t fulfill the promise of our mission without you.

Women and men of all ages and backgrounds participate in our events, comfort peers living with MS, lend their professional talents to special projects and office work, chair their own fundraisers, lobby elected officials and even provide leadership as members of our Board of Trustees.

The Greater Illinois Chapter welcomes the diversity that volunteers bring to our mission of creating a world free of multiple sclerosis. As an organization, we are committed to providing growth and development for those choosing to contribute their time and resources as volunteers.
