Become a Volunteer

CHF volunteers:

The Chicago Humanities Festival needs your help! Support CHF by volunteering and receive free Festival tickets - 2 tickets for shifts with one program and 4 tickets for shifts with 2 programs (8 tickets maximum).

The Chicago Humanities Festival would not be possible without dedicated volunteers who work to create an organized and pleasant atmosphere at every program. We invite you to work alongside leading thinkers and performers, share your passion for the humanities, and help bring outstanding cultural programming to your community by volunteering.

Each year the Festival needs over 300 volunteers to greet and usher patrons, manage crowds, and sell tickets at Festival events. The 26th annual Chicago Humanities Festival will run Oct 24Nov 8, 2015, come volunteer and join the conversation this fall. This year we will explore the multitude of ways we experience our lives today as “citizens”; how we belong to our communities and cities, to our nations and to the world; and how environmental, technological, and historical pressures shape our understanding of citizenship.
