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 environment, 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 LGBTQA related subjects

  • Organize materials for outreach programs such as Safe Space

  • Assist the LGBTRC Staff with special events and projects

Commitment:


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 wearing ear buds/earphones while on duty. Volunteers may study and/or work on homework during their shift if they are not assigned to a specific project.

Qualifications:

  • Must be enrolled undergraduate, graduate, or professional student at the University of Georgia
  • Must be willing to serve as a positive support resource for the LGBTQA community
