Traffic alert: During the busy Chicago Air & Water Show weekend, all CAC tours and events will begin on time as scheduled. We recommend that you allow extra time prior to your arrival for any scheduled CAC tour or event.

Our volunteers are the heart of the Chicago Architecture Center.

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

The CAC volunteer community is made up of more than 1,500 passionate docents, education guides, exhibit hosts, guest services and Open House Chicago volunteers dedicated to creating extraordinary experiences for our visitors. In return for their valued service, volunteers receive exciting benefits, including 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.
