About the Barrington Area Volunteer Connection

Launched in January of 2021, the Barrington Area Volunteer Connection (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 Get Connected which serves as a clearinghouse to bring together organizations, volunteers, and collaborators to match volunteer interests with nonprofits needing assistance. GetConnected also offers organizations optional features such as easy record keeping of volunteer hours, as well as mobile check in and shift reminders and other ways to communicate with volunteers.

We're excited to partner with the Advocate Aurora Health nurses for our Stress Prevention event on Friday during all BHS lunch hours. We'll be talking with students about healthy stress management tools and tips as well as learning what they do to help stay cool under pressure before they kick-off De-Stress BHS Week next Monday.

Make sure to remind your student to stop by and say hi!
