DeKalb County KEYS (Keep Engaging Youth to Succeed) and Kishwaukee United Way are hosting the first annual Care or Be Square Youth and Family Volunteer Fair for DeKalb County middle and high school youth this Thursday, May 24, at DeKalb County Community Outreach Building’s Blank Slate Room (2500 N. Annie Glidden Road, DeKalb) from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. They have 22 vendors participating in this first time event. Vendors will be sharing information about the youth and/or family volunteer opportunities available in their organizations.
Mary Hess, Asset Specialist at DeKalb County KEYS Initiative says “Not long ago, our research found only 22% of DeKalb and Sycamore youth report they are given useful roles in the community. The youth & family volunteer fair is one way we can let our kids know that they can make a valuable contribution in the communities where they live. ”
