Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are the heartbeat of the Center’s work.

Community is what keeps the New Haven Pride Center in motion. We have multiple volunteer opportunities available throughout the year!

  • Table with us at local LGBTQ+ events or other community events
  • Help NHPC organize our community clothing closet as well as our community food pantry
  • Volunteer at our local PRIDE New Haven event (in September)
  • Volunteer at any of our Galas throughout the year
  • And so many more!

Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

Docent Volunteers : Welcome the Community to the Center

During the Center’s drop in hours, join us to welcome the community into our space. Docent volunteers will with work with Center staff to showcase the drop in services and programming, including giving introductions to the Center’s Great Room Gallery exhibitions. Other opportunities to support during your volunteer times include sorting food and clothing donations and help keep the Center organized.

Community Ambassadors : Share the Message of the Center

Help us highlight the work and resources of the New Haven Pride Center at community events and pop-up Festivals as an ambassador at events throughout the year. Volunteers will work with staff members to manage our booths and help us spread the word about the Center to the larger community. Help pass out materials, answer questions and promote why the Center is a vital resource to our community.

PRIDE New Haven : Help Create one of the Largest LGBTQ+ Events

PRIDE New Haven’s success is driven by the support of volunteers who help with every aspect of the week’s events – from planning to production, PRIDE New Haven would not be possible without the support of our incredible volunteer corps. Each year the Center aims to recruit 50-60 volunteers to help with the various events of pride, particular the Saturday Festival at the North Haven Fair Grounds!
