Enabling Easy Connections for
Volunteers and Nonprofit Organizations
in the 60010 Area

The Barrington Volunteer Connection (BAVC) is a single, shared platform for local nonprofits, volunteers, partners, and collaborators. Our mission is to promote nonprofits, recruit volunteers and connect individuals in the community.

Barrington Area Volunteer Connection benefits the Barrington Community by:

  • Increasing awareness of the nonprofit to the community and how they can help residents
  • Reaching a larger audience to volunteers with shared interests
  • Building relationships with others in the nonprofit community
  • Aiding organizations seeking nonprofit direction and guidance

BAVC brings together the greater Barrington area nonprofits, service organizations, and faith organizations in one searchable database so that volunteers can easily find opportunities that match their interests.

Thank you to Barrington Area Community Foundation for their generous support.
