Get connected and get involved. Volunteer. It's rewarding and fun!
Did you know that Saskatoon Pride and the Saskatoon Pride Festival operates almost entirely due to volunteers? Thousands of volunteer hours go into nurturing and celebrating Pride in our city.
You become part of the Pride family when you volunteer. You offer your time, talent, and enthusiasm. Saskatoon Pride offers you a chance to make a difference to your community, meet new friends, learn new skills and gain knowledge, and have fun!
Becoming part of our corps of volunteers comes with rewards as well. In addition to complimentary or VIP access to events (based on volunteer hours), in the near future, you can join your fellow volunteers for social events like potlucks, learning opportunities, and more. We’ll have more details soon.
How Can you get involved?
Here are some ways others are volunteering with Pride:
- Becoming a board member
- Joining a committee
- Organizing an event
- Providing specialized and professional skills
- Assisting at events (numerous ways and opportunities)
- Being a parade marshal
- Being a green initiative volunteer
- Working at family events
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, Pride Golf Classic, Gurls, Pride Market, Drag Bingo, +55 Dances, Wes Funk Memorial Pride Latte, Pride at the Movies, and more.
Pride 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.
