Volunteer to be a Greeter

Share your love of Chicago with visitors by becoming a Chicago Greeter volunteer.

Chicago Greeters are friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the city.  Becoming a Chicago Greeter requires no additional experience, just a passion for Chicago. 

  • Chicago Greeter hosted 10,000 visitors from every state and over 100 countries
  • You don't have to speak a foreign language to be a Greeter: most of our guests speak English.  But Chicago receives visitors from all over the world, so if are fluent in Mandarin Chinese, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese - or have any other foreign language skills - we definitely could use you!
  • Are you very familiar with Bridgeport, Bucktown/Wicker Park, Hyde Park, Pilsen, Bronzeville, Andersonville and other neighborhoods outside of the Loop?
  • Show visitors your favorite spots in Chicago. Customize a visit for your guests highlighting what you love about Chicago.
  • Enjoy educational opportunities for Chicago Greeters and tour guide basics.
