Do you want to volunteer, but need to do so at your own pace and fit the work into a busy schedule? We need volunteers for our committees!
We have a few committees who need some focused help a couple of hours a month. They are working on amazing community projects, but need people who can commit to a few hours a month doing research, making calls, or spear-heading specific projects.
We normally request a year commitment for these committees because the monthly time requirement is shorter and the projects normally take a number of months to complete. However sometimes when we have large events occurring, we need a lot of hands on deck for a short period of time.
Outreach and Development Committee
We are building community connections, educating others and building awareness. This committee is responsible for planning all social and networking functions for The Center. Members of this committee help us organize PRIDE week and other numerous events. We also connect with others through information booths. The development aspect of the committee is related to advocacy, education and mission sustainability. In addition, we create ways to raise funds to support and promote our mission.
Meeting Time: 2nd and 4th Monday of the month at 5:30 p.m. at The Center
This team is critical to our ability to keep our doors open. We are always interested in assistance from grant experts or those with a gift for writing.
Meeting Time: 3rd Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at The Center
Communications is a new committee for us. We are trying to embrace a variety of ways to get the message out about our events, programming and center work. This often requires someone who can help us draft messages to the public, create flyers or posters for events or similar. If you are creative, artistic or a word-smith, we welcome you to the group.
Meeting Time: 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. at The Center
The programming committee is responsible for developing and ensuring the effective delivery of support programming that meets the needs of the community. The programming committee meets regularly to discuss the effectiveness of The Center’s support programs (e.g. Galaxy, Andromeda, TransForum) and address any concerns. The committee also discusses any potential additions to The Center’s programming and works develops new programs as interest arises from the community.
Meeting Time: 3rd Monday of the month at 5:00 p.m. at The Center
