Steppenwolf’s Young Professionals Group

The Steppenwolf Associates is a collective of the curious, the creative and the compassionate.

We are a group of over 100 young professionals working to inspire Chicago teens to become lifelong theater lovers. We are united around a passion for performance, an appreciation for arts education and the inherent ability to cut loose while giving back. We give back by fundraising for Steppenwolf Education.

Members receive great benefits including membership nights at the theater, private post-show events with artists, mentorship opportunities with Chicago high school students, access to great networking and social events, discounted tickets and more! Admission to the Steppenwolf Associates occurs on a rolling basis. 

Members interested in deepening their involvement with the Associates may be interested in joining the Steppenwolf Associates Board.  Associates Board members give an increased annual gift and receive additional exclusive benefits, like networking with the Steppenwolf Board of Trustees at exclusive events, holding governing positions within the Steppenwolf Associates, and more.
