Give • Your Time & Talent

We Always Need Want Volunteers
What’s your bag? We want to try to match your talent with your desire to give back to the LGBT community.
Volunteer opportunities are growing at the Montrose Center. As fast as you bring an idea to us, we’re going to try to find a way to incorporate it into our repertoire.
One of the new ways we’re expanding is through our wellness program. If you have an idea for a group that promotes wellness and reduces stress, we want to hear it. Volunteers are able to facilitate peer-led groups, whether it’s a one-time educational presentation (IDEAS: healthy holiday appetizers, how to challenge your property taxes, movie with a message, or a panel discussion on transgender travel) or a weekly get-together like our meditation or yoga groups. Put a team together to have a salon experience with rotating topics. Pitch an idea. We are excited to help get more activities for our community, and you might be the key to getting it moving.
Other volunteer opportunities involve staffing the David Bohnett Cyber Center. You don’t have to be an IT specialist to help at the computer lab. We just need you to know some basic computing skills. If you had some mad talent though, we’d love to have you come teach a free class.
Throughout 2013, we have had volunteer groups come in and help us with everything from planting to painting in order to spruce up our corner of the neighborhood. The difference a little green and a fresh coat of paint is remarkable. One staff member recently commented about the Q-cons welcoming guests to the elevator lobby on the ground floor, “I think it looks terrific!  Makes the building look more alive! MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO WORKED ON IT!!” We have some more projects in the works and will need volunteer muscle to get them done.

If you are outgoing and like meeting new people, we’d like you help us at the front desk or representing us at various community events and health fairs. We often need volunteers for things like World AIDS Day, Fulfilling the Vision, Hatch Prom Set-up, and Bringin’ in the Green.
Volunteers are the soul of our organization. The Montrose Center was started by a group of volunteers and 35 years, we are flourishing because the community has chosen to make a difference with their time and talent.
