Get involved with your community. Volunteer with Saskatoon Pride!
Did you know that Saskatoon Pride and the Saskatoon Pride Festival operate almost entirely from a crew of dedicated volunteers? Thousands of volunteer hours go into nurturing and celebrating Pride in our city.
You become part of our Pride family when you volunteer by offering your time, talent, and enthusiasm. Saskatoon Pride offers you a chance to make a difference in your community, meet new friends, learn new skills, gain knowledge, and have fun!
While things might look different right now and we are primarily running our programming virtually with some in-person drive-in events, there is still a need for volunteers, and you still get perks such as complimentary entry to any paid events, swag, special mentions, and more. Get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to volunteer with us for the 2021 Pride Festival!
How can you get involved?
Here are some ways others are volunteering with Pride:
- Becoming a board member
- Joining a committee
- Organizing an event (currently virtual and drive-in see Show Your #YXEPride)
- Providing specialized and professional skills
- Assisting at virtual and drive-in events (numerous ways and opportunities)
Currently, Saskatoon Pride offers opportunities to join the following committees. Committees have decision-making authority (with a few exceptions) and require a time commitment of just a few hours a month:
Youth, Family, Marketing and communication, Inclusion, Grants and Sponsorships, Finance, Logistics, Governance, Events (includes the full board of directors), Entertainment, Volunteer Recruitment and Retention.
You can also help with planning events like: Spark Your Pride, Gurls, Pride Market, Drag Bingo, +55 Dances, Wes Funk Memorial Pride Latte, Pride at the Movies, and more.
Pride programming happens in Saskatoon all year long, so opportunities are likely available whatever time of year you are free. If you can be available anytime of year, all the better! Whether your schedule allows you to offer a few hours or more time, there is a place for you in our Pride family.
