ABOUT THE VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

The HI USA PUB TOUR allows our travelers to engage in a common social activity that allows an opportunity for them to learn more about the community and each other. The primary purpose of a PUB TOUR is to expose guests to new locations within our community and have conversations with other guests.

We invite you to bring your area of expertise to curate a weekly budget-friendly LGBTQ+ bar tour. We are seeking a volunteer who can share with guests the local culture and history of a queer-friendly neighborhood in Chicago. The volunteer would meet guests at our hostel in the Loop, then take them on the CTA to the neighborhood, where the volunteer would lead the tour.

As the PUB TOUR volunteer, we ask that you ensure your program provides opportunities for guests to learn and share history, culture, and perspectives. For this LGBTQ+ pub tour, we require the following:

  • Each establishment you visit must have: A unique history/story that gives insight to the local LGBTQ+ culture, and/or inclusion of historically underrepresented / diverse perspectives of the city - this could be represented by neighborhood, clientele, ownership.
  • The tour must include questions and/or activities that encourage conversations and/or reflection among the guests. Some examples include asking guests if they have locations with a similar history or inviting guest to share their favorite pub traditions!

By adding these elements into the PUB TOUR, we can ensure that our guests are getting an experience that is FUN, but also gives them an opportunity to gain a better understanding of our community and different perspectives!

SCHEDULE

We are looking for a 3-hour pub tour on any of the following evenings: Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays or Sundays.
