Some advice for new volunteers from previous volunteers:

“My advice for new volunteers would be to take in all that you can, it’s a great thing to do to not only meet people, add to your resume or just have some fun at Pride from a different perspective. You might meet some cool people in unexpected ways or find out about some events you never knew about. There are lots of unexpected things that are so beautiful and awesome that happen every day at Pride so volunteering is a great way to find out and the extra helping hands are always needed!”

“You will enjoy yourself! Have fun meeting new and diverse groups of people.  Any volunteering you do, no matter how big or small, makes an impact.  It’s a great opportunity to be part of a great team and build connections in your community!”

“Volunteering is a very rewarding experience. It is a great way to be a part of an amazing community. It is also a great place to get work experience and learn new things. Be sure to get a reference letter if you can in order to pad your resume, especially if you have never worked before.”

“As a fellow new volunteer myself, kudos to all of us for taking the initiative and contributing your energy, positivity, and care to this amazing cause! Keep your mind open to new learnings, new friends, and new perspectives. Most importantly, have fun and enjoy the ride!”
