Glenoce Junior Kindergarten offers a wide variety of school and community events. More information about events for the 2018-2019 school year coming soon!!
ON GOING EVENTS:
Every Tuesday SNAP meets on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 9 PM in the Glencoe Youth Services (GYS) building, located at 680 Greenwood Avenue in Glencoe. Every week starts with a warm, healthy dinner provided by generous donors (including religious organizations, non-profits, and individual families). Anyone interested in providing a dinner should email Eddie Simon, the Director at Director@glencoeyouthservices.org. The space offers a warm and welcoming environment with many recreational activities, including pool, ping-pong, computers, video and board games, movies and TV. When the weather is nice, we are able to take advantage of the adjacent playing fields where you may spot us tossing a frisbee, playing bocce ball or enjoying a summer BBQ.
North Shore Senior Center Find different ways to assist the older adults who participate in the programs, services, and activities offered by North Shore Senior Center. More than 500 volunteers provide countless hours of support to keep the Center vibrant and working efficiently.
This would be an amazing opportunity for parents who have the availability to help out!
Bernies Book Bank Bernie’s Book Bank is looking for volunteers that want a hands-on opportunity to impact the literacy crisis in Chicagoland. They welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities. Drop-in during their scheduled volunteer hours or they can organize a convenient time for GJK to help sort, sticker and pack quality books for at-risk children.
Great idea for Room mom’s to organize amongst their grades and classrooms as a fun and rewarding project!

The Alliance for Early Childhood The Alliance for Early Childhood is a community collaboration organization that promotes the healthy growth and development of children from birth to age eight (or 3rd grade) by providing resources, programs, and support for the parents and professionals who teach and care for them. Founded in 1989 as the Winnetka Alliance for Early Childhood, the Alliance changed its name to The Alliance for Early Childhood in 2011, in recognition of its growth well beyond the borders of Winnetka. Currently, we serve Winnetka, Northfield, Kenilworth, and neighboring communities on the North Shore of Chicago.
