Volunteer in Chicago

Bridges Chicago values partnership with our community volunteers.


Did you know that Chicago is one of the most diverse cities in the U.S.? Approximately 20,000 international students live in our city. Many desire to connect with Americans but have little opportunity to step into deep friendship. Our desire is to see each international connected through friendship with people who live in Chicago. We would love to help you make friends from all over the world.

We understand people are busy so whether you can only serve in a limited way or you can partner more significant time, we have many ways you can get involved with us. We would love to get to know you.

Please connect with us below, and we will get back with you.

Thanksgiving Hosting

Most international students will never enter an American family’s home. Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to welcome in some students to join you in your celebration. Sign up today to host an international student during the week for Thanksgiving. Sunday November 18th-Saturday November 24th. Invite them into something you already have planned or plan a special dinner with family or friends to have students join in!
