Center Application

The mission of Affirmations is to provide a welcoming space where people of all sexual orientations, gender identities & expressions, and cultures can find support and unconditional acceptance, and where they can learn, grow, socialize and feel safe. We accept Intern Applications from both undergraduate and graduate students.

Volunteers can become Facilitators and mediate support & discussion groups, work as Adult Allies in our Youth Program, join any and all of our various committees, attend outreach activities and events and assist the Center by staffing The Welcome and Resource Desk, our one-stop shop for all things LGBTQ+.

All prospective volunteers who pass the background check will be contacted to confirm their selected RSVP date for Volunteer & Adult Ally Training.

All information is Confidential except in an emergency.
