Volunteer at GLAAD

Volunteering at GLAAD

GLAAD understands the importance of volunteers in our work: We simply would not exist without your support! For this reason, GLAAD invests in a volunteer program with the objective of focusing on the recruitment, management, leadership development, support and retention of our greatest advocates. We offer a mutually beneficial volunteer experience that is fun, informative, and rewarding. Founded by a small group of volunteers in 1985, GLAAD continues to thrive on the energy and passion of our volunteers nationwide.
