LGBT Resource Center Volunteer Program

As a volunteer, you will be a representative of the UCSD LGBT Resource Center. As a volunteer you develop and sustain visibility, sense of community, and knowledge of diverse queer people in collaboration with the LGBT Resource Center staff. The volunteers are an integral part of keeping the LGBT Resource Center functioning on a daily basis. We work with our volunteers closely to develop volunteer times and opportunities that can be tailored to meet your schedule and skills. Volunteers are highly valued and appreciated and we encourage everyone interested in becoming more involved in our community to volunteer at the LGBT Resource Center.
