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

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

Recently launched, BAVC was developed via a partnership between Barrington Area Development Council and the Barrington Area Library. BAVC’s goal is to bring all 100+ Barrington area nonprofits, churches and service organizations in one searchable database so that volunteers can easily find opportunities.

The foundation of BAVC is a volunteer match platform called GetConnected which serves as a clearinghouse to bring together nonprofits, volunteers, and collaborators to match volunteer interests with organizations needing assistance.

GetConnected also offers organizations optional features such as easy record keeping of volunteer hours, mobile check in and shift reminders and other ways to communicate with volunteers.

Barrington Area Volunteer Connection believes that we can benefit the Barrington Community by:

  • Increasing awareness of the nonprofit to the community and how they can help residents
  • Reaching a larger audience to identify and recruit volunteers
  • Building relationships with others in the nonprofit community
  • Aiding organizations seeking board development or new staff members
