Open volunteer positions:

Reception

If you enjoy greeting people, answering the phone, providing referrals, and completing the intermittent administrative task, then this might be for you! The front desk is the first point of contact for many visitors, callers, clients and community members. We currently need volunteers for shifts ranging from 2-4 hours during all open hours. For more information, email Mona Lewis, Facilities Coordinator.


Program Facilitators

Do you have an idea for a one-time or recurring event that will bring LGBTQ Brooklynites together? Have you always wanted to host a knitting circle? Teach a class on drag basics? Organize a discussion group around LGBTQ themes in your favorite TV show? We are looking for volunteers who want to organize and lead programs and events that are open to the public. Recently, people have brought us ideas like a monthly book club, a karaoke night, drag queen story hour, or board game night, any of which you may see soon. If you have an idea, email Mona Lewis, Facilities Coordinator for further discussion.


Carpenter

We’re looking for an experienced carpenter to donate their time toward a few storage, beautification, and practical projects at Brooklyn Community Pride Center. We want to ditch the pre-fab shelves in favor of some quality, professional, custom woodwork. If you’ve got the talent and the tools, we’ve got the need and supplies. For more information, email Mona Lewis, Facilities Coordinator with photos of 3-4 examples of your work.


Special Events

We’re always happy to have a few extra hands when we throw or participate in special events. As ambassadors for Brooklyn Community Pride Center, you may be helping take tickets, check coats, move supplies, or pass out fliers. With no fixed schedule, this is a great role for people who only have a few hours here and there. For more information, email Mona Lewis, Facilities Coordinator.


Brooklyn Community Pride Center is committed to providing the highest quality service to our community and constituents. While the Center respects the right to privacy of all citizens, we also have a responsibility to make every attempt to provide the safest space possible for  youth, families, children, seniors, disabled and other more vulnerable members of our community. In light of this duty, regular volunteers may be required to participate in fingerprint checks, in addition to a brief review of publicly available criminal databases. Thank you for your cooperation and for helping us create a safe and comfortable space for all.
