Volunteering at CHF

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 200 volunteers to greet and usher patrons, manage crowds, and sell tickets at Festival events. Help support the Chicago Humanities Festival by volunteering and receive free Festival tickets (2 tickets for shifts with one program and 4 tickets for shifts with 2 programs).

If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, contact Saloni Dar, Associate Director, Administration and Operations, email: or call: 312-661-1028 ext. 715 for details about volunteering.
