COMMUNITY SERVICE

BJWC members give back directly to the community through active volunteer work. All BJWC are required to perform at least two hours of community service. Our philosophy is that through this direct engagement, our members will gain a deeper understanding of the impact we have on the community and how other groups are impacted by the work we do. Additionally, through our community outreach committee, we provide additional support to others locally such as Barrington Honor Ride & Bike Barrington, Sunny Hill School, etc.

Tutoring at Sunny Hill

Each Wednesday morning, several BJWC members meet with students at Sunny Hill in a one-on-one or small group setting to deliver more personalized attention, focusing on reading, math or a particular assignment. For each volunteer that attends, the pull to return becomes stronger as the need is underscored in interacting with these appreciative, enthusiastic, and fun students!
