Open House Chicago Teen Ambassadors

A program to involve 32 teens from minority and low-income groups in the study of the architectural history of Chicago’s neighborhoods.

The Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) requests a Humanities Access Grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities to support a new Open House Chicago Teen Ambassadors program in 2018 and 2019. In this program, CAF will work with 32 teens over nine month periods during 2018 and 2019. Participating teens will: 1) conduct primary source research in Chicago’s neighborhoods; 2) create audio/visual artifacts that will be shared digitally; and 3) serve as ambassadors during Open House Chicago, the largest free architectural festival in the country. This Teen Ambassadors program will enrich the experiences of festival visitors while also arming teens with new skills in humanities-based research and interpretation.
