Do you want to make a difference in your community? Seguin Services is seeking adult volunteers, aged 55 or better, to volunteer with F.I.I.V.E Chicago. F.I.I.V.E.

The volunteers will mentor the young adults as they volunteer together at area soup kitchens, animal shelters, for environmental causes, with foster children, in nursing homes or hospitals, with homebound older adults and more.
