Northwest Portland Hostel

Centrally Located – in the Heart of Portland

A Trip to the Windy City

Saturday, October 25, 2014

This week our Volunteer Coordinator flew to Chicago to attend HI USA’s first annual Engagement Summit. The Summit was an important step toward our goal of making HI USA a leading hostel provider in the world and a valued source of experiential learning.  It also allowed engagement staff from all of the country to come together to discuss how we can better the guest experience through our volunteer and activity programs.

Our Volunteer Coordinator stayed at HI Chicago while attending the conference. Here’s some photos from her time in the Windy City.
