Thanks for your interest in volunteering with The GLBT Community Center of Colorado. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization and we love our volunteers! Every year, more than 500 dedicated individuals from all walks of life help us to fulfill our mission, donating over $300,000 in time and talent. From greeting visitors at the front desk to assisting with one of the largest LGBT celebrations in the nation, Center volunteers make a real difference in our community.
We encourage you to explore the volunteer positions available at The Center. There are so many great ways to get involved and we would love to have you join our growing team of volunteers.
There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes at The Center and we’re always in need of enthusiastic volunteers to help with these organizational tasks. Administrative volunteers assist in a variety of office duties such as data entry, phone calls, mailing preparation, copying and filing.
In the 40 year history of The Center, we have learned that education and advocacy works! We need your passion and voice! We are looking for volunteers to attend the various legally permitted rallies, marches and demonstrations to represent The Center and the LGBTQ community. These events are NOT organized by The Center, we simply want to support their efforts and make it known that many of the issues are also LGBTQ issues.
Reception Area/Front Desk
Front desk volunteers are the first point of contact for visitors, callers, clients and community members. Responsibilities of the front desk team include greeting all visitors, clients and callers, and providing information, resources and referrals as needed. This position requires a background check and a minimum six month commitment to work at least one (1) shift per week.
The Center often hosts community and fundraising events that require additional volunteer assistance. Volunteers help to set up for the event, greet and register guests, serve refreshments, and so much more.
The Center offers numerous programs to meet the ever-changing needs of the LGBT community. SAGE of the Rockies provides social events and support for community members over the age of 50, while Rainbow Alley serves the needs of youth age 12-21. The Transgender Program offers support and job assistance to our Transgender community. Each of these programs needs volunteers to assist with various activities throughout the year. The Center’s Legal and Advocacy program also offers internships throughout the year for students of the University of Denver and the University of Colorado.
Every June, more than 350,000 people gather in Civic Center Park to celebrate Denver PrideFest. Such a large community event could not take place without the help of more than 150 volunteers. PrideFest volunteers assist with all aspects of the festival; from the initial planning to providing production, entertainment, and guest assistance. Recruitment for PrideFest volunteers begins in April of each year.
