Volunteer for Open House Chicago

Volunteers provide essential support during the Open House Chicago (OHC) weekend by ensuring that visitors are properly greeted and informed. Each year during Open House Chicago, more than 1000 people volunteer their time in support of this cultural event.

Stationed at all 150 OHC locations throughout the city, volunteer greeters have an important role in controlling admission to sites, answering questions and tracking visitor attendance. With the generous help of volunteer greeters, Open House Chicago promises to be one of the largest and most exciting cultural events in Chicago this year.

Volunteer greeter benefits:

  • Priority access at all OHC sites for you and a companion
  • 50% off a CAF membership
  • 15% discount at the CAF retail shop
  • OHC T-shirt and lanyard souvenirs
  • Two free CAF walking tour passes
  • A great experience as part of a citywide cultural event!
