Become a Stonewall Columbus Volunteer and Connect to your Community!
Stonewall Columbus Volunteer Coordinator
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.
Volunteer ASL Interpreter:
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.
Education and/or Experience – Certificate of Interpretation or a similar American Sign Language certification is recommended, but not required. Knowledge of LGBTQ terminology is crucial, especially on trans and gender inclusive terminology.
Professionalism and Trustworthiness – Must be able to conduct self in a professional manner. Volunteers may be privy to participants’ personal information and will be expected to treat information and encounters with the utmost care and respect.
Stonewall Columbus’ biggest event of the year, Pride, is made possible by your help! There are many different volunteer roles available for throughout Pride weekend. Pride 2017 volunteer information will be available in Spring 2017.
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 2017 will be held on June 16th and June 17th at Genoa/Bicentennial Park.
