There are two ways to register for an Open House:

1. Contact Greencorps Chicago at (312) 746-9777 to be put on the Open House wait list. Once an Open House has been scheduled, we will call you back to register you for the Open House.

2. Contact a referring agency and request a referral from that agency. The referring agency should contact Greencorps with the name and contact information of the individual expressing interest in the program.

After attending an Open House, interested individuals may then submit an application.
