    Volunteer at Chicago Ideas Week

    Volunteers are the backbone of Chicago Ideas Week. Part of our Community of Curiosity, they help with everything from scanning tickets to staffing an activity station.

    Thank you for your interest in volunteering during CIW 2017, October 16-22!

    We are no longer accepting volunteers for CIW 2017. The next volunteer opportunities will take place during CIW 2018 (October 15-21, 2018). Please submit the below form now so we can contact you on August 27, 2018 about CIW 2018 volunteer opportunities.

    Whether you are a new or returning volunteer, if you do not hear from us on August 27, 2018 email volunteers(at)chicagoideas(dot)comletting us know.

    Submitting the form neither confirms you as nor commits you to being a volunteer. Volunteers are crucial to CIW's success, so we thank you for volunteering and ask you to please spread the word.

    If you have any questions please visit the Volunteer FAQ. For additional questions please contact volunteers(at)chicagoideas(dot)com, we're happy to help!

    To ensure you receive our emails, add volunteers(at)chicagoideas(dot)com to your address book.
