WorldChicago hosts events, programs and meetings for over 1000 international delegates each year. Our Education Initiative brings many of these delegates into Chicago classrooms providing local students with unique international exchanges and experiences.
WorldChicago offers Chicago-area citizens ways to be involved, including professional hosting, expertise sharing and social dinner-hosting. We offer full-day cultural experiences; home stay hosting; the opportunity to attend WorldChicago events to network and meet other internationally-minded Chicagoans. We also offer interesting and meaningful mentoring, internship, and volunteer opportunities. WorldChicago is a non-profit organization that achieves these goals through federal government and private programs and individual donations. MORE
