There are several different ways you can volunteer with Stonewall and give to the LGBTQ+ community; we’d love to have you join the team of volunteers!
Stonewalls’ Center Greeters are central to ensuring our visitors and those who contact the Center are direct to the resources and information they seek. This team contributor:
- Offer exceptional customer service;
- Greet visitors;
- Answer a multi-line phone;
- Provide electronic and print resources to constituents;
- Assist with light administrative duties if needed;
- Foster and support a positive environment.
This opportunity requires a commitment of no less than 4 hours per shift; 9am-1pm or 1pm to 5pm; Monday – Friday.
The Outreach Team works to get the word out about our many programs, events, classes, and activities happening at Stonewall. Outreach events are a great way to get involved if you are not able to volunteer on a weekly basis. Teams drop off fliers and information to local businesses and community centers. Must provide your own transportation.
The Table Team represents Stonewall Columbus at festivals, fairs, and events throughout the year. Volunteers will provide education and outreach to individuals and organizations about the different programs, resources, events, and activities available through Stonewall.
Stonewall Columbus is seeking volunteers to assist with ASL interpretation for programs and events that we have throughout the year. Our goal is to provide meaningful programs that serve those who are deaf or hard of hearing by promoting communication equity. Volunteers will work with LGBTQ identified community members during programs and events to allow us to meet the needs of each individual who walks through our doors.
P.I.T Crew (Pride in Training):
PIT Crew is a high-level volunteer position for those who want to learn more about what goes into planning Pride and are interested in being a part of the Pride Committee later. Volunteers participate with the Pride Committee and are mentored by one of the Committee Members on what it takes to organize and run a festival and parade of this size. Columbus Pride is the second-largest Pride festival and parade in the Midwest and is a great way to give back to the community. As a member of PIT Crew, you will have the opportunity to help put on Columbus Pride and will have a direct impact on the festival and parade. Must fill out an application and complete an interview process. Plan on some level of time commitment from April through June, including most of Pride Festival weekend. Pride 2020 will be held on June 19th and June 20th at Genoa/Bicentennial Park.
Looking to get your feet wet and do some great service? Join our core of volunteers who mostly engage weekend of activities.
