Program 1

HOSTEL STAY: AYH CHICAGO HOSTS TRAVELERS FROM MORE THAN 75 COUNTRIES AND MORE THAN 90,000 OVERNIGHTS ANNUALLY. IT IS PART OF THE AYH NETWORK OF 45 HOSTELS NATIONWIDE. THE HOSTEL STAY CREATES THE OPPORTUNITY FOR CULTURAL EXCHANGE AND UNDERSTANDING AND IS FUNDAMENTAL TO ALL OTHER PROGRAMS WE OFFER. THE HOSTEL IS PURPOSELY DESIGNED WITH SPACES AND AMENITIES THAT BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER AND ENCOURAGE INTERACTION IN AN INCLUSIVE AND INVITING WAY. WE STRATEGICALLY DEVELOP AND USE SPACES TO DELIVER CULTURAL EXCHANGE EXPERIENCES TO OUR GUESTS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS. AS TRAVELERS GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER, THEY DISCOVER THEIR SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES, BREAK DOWN STEREOTYPES AND SOCIAL BARRIERS, EXPAND WORLD VIEWS, AND HELP TO CREATE A MORE TOLERANT WORLD.

LEARNING PROGRAMS: AYH CHICAGO DELIVERS EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES IN THE HOSTEL AND IN THE COMMUNITY TO FACILITATE THE SHARING OF CULTURAL PERSPECTIVES AMONG GUESTS, AND FOR CONNECTING GUESTS WITH THE LOCAL COMMUNITY. WE ENCOURAGE GUESTS AND COMMUNITY PARTICIPANTS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND OTHER CULTURES, REFLECT ON THEIR OWN PERSPECTIVES AND UNDERSTANDING, AND TAKE ACTIONS CONSISTENT WITH THEIR LEARNINGS. PROGRAM DESIGN IS ALIGNED WITH AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES (AACU) LEARNING RUBRICS IN THE DISCIPLINES OF INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION, CIVIC ENGAGEMENT AND GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP. EACH YEAR, AYH CHICAGO DELIVERS OVER 500 FACILITATED LEARNING PROGRAMS TO NEARLY 9,000 PARTICIPANTS.

SLEEP FOR PEACE ENGAGES HOSTEL GUESTS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS IN ACTIVITIES THAT CELEBRATE THE UNITED NATIONS' INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE AND EXPLORE HOW THEY CAN CONTRIBUTE TO A PEACEFUL SOCIETY. THE GREAT HOSTEL GIVE BACK PROGRAM IS OFFERED TO GROUPS OF SIX OR MORE PEOPLE AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO RECEIVE A FREE NIGHT'S STAY AT OUR HOSTELS DURING THE MONTHS OF JANUARY AND FEBRUARY FOR EACH DAY THEIR MEMBERS VOLUNTEER IN THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY.
