Volunteering at the LGBT Resource Center
Through volunteer support and involvement, the LGBT Resource Center serves all students on the University of Georgia campus. Volunteers help establish an inclusive enviornment, welcoming all who seek support. We appreciate and depend on our volunteers as they provide the support of a full-time administrative assistant position.
Volunteer Responsibilities Include:
Serve as first point of contact when students, faculty, staff, and visitors enter the Center
Perform administrative assistant duties including answering phones and maintaining a clean environment
Provide tours of the Center to visitors
Provide resources and referral tools to students in need of extra support
Attend volunteer meetings
Assist in revising printed and online materials
Assist in researching topics on LGBT related subjects
Organize materials for outreach programs such as Safe Space
Assist the LGBTRC Programming Board with special events and projects
Volunteers are asked to commit to a work schedule for the semester dictated by the amount of time she/he/ze has available. Students are asked to work a minimum of one two-hour shift per week. Due to the important role that they play in our Center, we ask that volunteers refrain from eating and/or wearing ear buds/earphones while on duty. Volunteers may study and/or work on homework during their shift.
