Chicago for Chicagoans

Chicago for Chicagoans is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization offering pay-what-you-can walking tours and history events designed for, and by, Chicago residents.

The mission of Chicago for Chicagoans is simple: to educate residents about the places they inhabit, creating lifelong bonds and a deeper understanding between people and their spaces. Chicago for Chicagoans believes in accessibility of information, making the "pay-what-you-can" approach particularly crucial to the organization. Everyone deserves  opportunities to learn about their surroundings, no matter what their financial situation may be.

Chicago for Chicagoans strives to form a collaborative learning endeavor by locals, for locals. By working with other tour guides, passionate community advocates, and various other "neighborhood correspondents," Chicago for Chicagoans hopes to create tours that are fully connected and integrated into the areas they explore.

Finally, Chicago for Chicagoans seeks to create a community among its participants. A group dinner is always planned after the tours, to encourage conversation, connection, and collaboration among our group of urban explorers.
