Thank you for your interest in the Arts & Business Council of Chicago’s Business Volunteers for the Arts (BVA) program. BVA consultants are the heart of A&BC programming and provide thousands of hours of pro-bono consulting to our clients each year. As a BVA consultant, you have the opportunity to work with some of the most exciting emerging and mid-sized arts organizations in the city, and to become part of a network of hundreds of volunteers.

Once you submit your application, an A&BC staff member will contact you to let you know if your background is a good fit for the BVA program and to schedule an interview. 

If you have any questions about the BVA program, please contact Kenneth Franco at or 312-372-1876 x102.

We look forward to receiving your application and learning about your passions and your skills.
