Volunteer of the Month

"Never doubt that a small group of commited people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead

We are incredibly grateful to the growing number of community members who have said yes to joining our dynamic team; helping to make the SF LGBT Center a welcoming space to find innovative services and fabulous cultural programs. Each month we recognize one volunteer who proudly represents the mission of the Center to be praised as our Volunteer of the Month.

"Working with Armando has been a great experience. He's been volunteering since before I started working at the Center! His energy, dependability, and continual engagement with everyone and everything we do here at the Center is especially inspiring."- Felipe Flores, Community Programs Coordinator

"Working with Victor has been incredible. Victor came to us wanting to support the Center looking to see how he could support our mission. He had experience throwing fundraisers for other nonprofits and wanted to help the Center build its resources to further serve our community. He got involved over a year ago helping out at Soiree. Since then, he has developed events for the Center such as a house party for Soiree and more recently threw a fashion and philanthropy event that raised over $2,400 for the Center. He really has been a champion of the Center to help us connect to people we didn't previously know."- Roberto Ordenana, Director of Development

"Chris is a highly valued member of the Tuesday & Thursday Job Clubs. Chris was a brand new resident of SF when he learned about volunteer opportunities with Employment Services at the Center. He wanted to help LGBT job seekers with advice & suggestions since he is a recruiter for a national publishing company. Chris has gone above and beyond the call of duty. He has been able to help LGBT job seekers not just at the Job Clubs but on his own time. And the best part of it all, Chris’ desire to volunteer has never stopped. I truly feel I couldn’t complete Tuesday & Thursday Job Clubs without Chris’ knowledge & assistance. I hope to never lose Chris."- Benjamin Bustamante, Employment Specialist

“A graduate of TEEI’s fall 2013 Work-It! Workshop Series, Sage is reliable, professional and extremely courteous. Sage was a clear choice for Volunteer of the Month for these and so many other reasons, most notably, they’re here when you need them."

Volunteers represent our foundation. Whether you’re interested in one day or extended volunteer duties, we would love for you to join our growing team. Throughout the year our volunteers will plan and participate in dozens of events aimed at promoting community engagement and raising funds for Center campaigns.
