Our volunteers are the heart of this organization.

In so many ways, volunteers serve as the public face of the Chicago Architecture Foundation. It’s their commitment to excellence that enables us to carry out our mission of inspiring people to discover why design matters.

The CAF volunteer community is made up of more than 1500 passionate docents, visitor experience volunteers, mentors and special event volunteers dedicated to creating extraordinary experiences for our visitors. In return for their valued service, volunteers receive several benefits including CAF memberships, gift shop discounts and opportunities for continuing education.

Are you passionate about Chicago’s architecture and history?
Would you enjoy engaging with local, national and international visitors?

We have a volunteer opportunity tailor-made for you.
