Youth Outlook, formerly the Questioning Youth Center (QYC), seeks volunteers to assist with operating our drop-in centers, youth leadership program and community education work. If you have 5 hours per month to spare, we will provide the training you need.

Youth Outlook’s weekly groups meet in DeKalb on Mondays, in Naperville on Tuesdays, and Aurora on Thursdays. Don’t forget our new drop-in center in St. Charles! Got time in your schedule for an evening with extremely intelligent, politically aware youth? Got time to laugh? We’ve got a place for you!


To learn more about volunteer opportunities with Youth Outlook, contact Nancy Mullen, Executive Director, at or (815) 754-5331 to receive an application.
