Become an Affirmations Volunteer

Since 1989 we have remained committed to fostering community involvement through an active volunteer program. Volunteer opportunities span a variety of programs and roles like Front Desk Volunteers, Group Facilitators, and Youth Advocates. We also offer opportunities to fulfill any type of Community Service hours if needed. Volunteers are also vital to the success of such events as Pride, The Spring Bash, and Fall Fling. Only through the literally thousands of volunteer hours donated each year is Affirmations able to offer the programs and services it does to the local LGBTQ community on a daily basis. 

 

Attention! As of September 2017:
All prospective volunteers must attend Volunteer Orientation & Training and Adult Ally Training, complete the volunteer application, submit to and pass a background check and sign the Confidentiality Agreement, to be eligible for service with Affirmations. Adult Ally Training must be complete within three months of the Volunteer Orientation & Training start date.
