How it works


Our Journey programs require commitment. We count on our Youth Agency partners to recruit participants and cover part of the cost. Chicago Voyagers, on the other hand, designs the program to focus on a particular area of development such as leadership, teamwork, or communication.  

Generally, Journeys comprise of eight teens and two adult chaperones (which the partnering agency is expected to send). We assign a guide, volunteers, and equipment. We are also responsible for the overall management of the program and do whatever we can to ensure everyone has a successful experience.

Programs are free to our youth. We ask our partners to cover a small portion of the program costs. Please contact our Program Manager using the button below to discuss this further.
