Info Session Registration

Application Stage One

  • Basic Background Information
  • Personal Statement

After you submit the Basic Background Information + Personal Statement, a staff member will contact you to schedule a 45-60 minute Q&A phone call. This allows you to ask questions about the program and learn more specifics, and allows us to get to know you and your career interests better. Once the Q&A is complete, the recruiter will provide instructions about the second stage of the application process.

Application Stage Two

  • Core Tenet Responses
  • Resume (emailed as an attachment to volunteer@amatehouse.org)
  • Three References

After you submit the Core Tenet Responses, Resume, and three References, we will set up a formal interview with you. This year, in lieu of an in-person interview here in Chicago, all interviews will take place virtually via Zoom.
