Social Service Projects

We care about our community

Embedded in the WYO values is gratitude and we strongly encourage our teens every Saturday to give back to their community by volunteering for organizations and people in need. WYO witnesses that every teen who volunteers expands their world-view and gain new perspectives, in addition to an increase in self-esteem and social networking skills.



Some of the organizations we partner up with for these weekly opportunities include

  • Infant Welfare Society of Evanston
  • Heartland Animal Shelter of Evanston
  • Bernie’s Book Bank
  • Rivertrail Nature Center in Northbrook
  • The Night Ministry
  • Rotary Club of Winnetka-Northfield
  • Alden Rehabilitation Center of Des Plaines
  • Hilda’s Place
  • The Chicago Food Depository
  • Barnes and Noble
