About WorldChicago

WorldChicago is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that hosts citizen diplomacy programs that connect the Chicago community with international professional and youth leaders participating in U.S. Department of State exchanges in Chicago. Founded as the Hospitality Center of Greater Chicago in 1952, then later the International Visitors Center of Chicago, we became WorldChicago in 2010.

WorldChicago visitors explore their fields of interest through meetings with our extensive network of Chicago-area citizen diplomats, who are leading voices in the public, private, nonprofit, and tech sectors. Recent exchanges have centered on topics such as green technology and climate change, public health, government accountability, combating domestic violence, and preservation of cultural heritage.

“It was great to see how the nonprofit sector worked. The staff is small and young so I felt like I could bond with them. There is so much diversity in the office and the business they are in. You also are doing work that makes a difference and impacts the organization. Yes, you do a few "intern" tasks, but they will utilize your skills and put you to work.”
