Volunteering at Lambert House
Volunteers make it possible for Lambert House to keep its doors open. We have approximately 75 volunteers whose roles include board members, drop-in center volunteers, cyber center volunteers, discussion group facilitators, activity volunteers, youth volunteers, and meal providers. The purpose of the volunteer program is to provide the delivery of all programs and services at Lambert House.
Drop-in Center Volunteers
Volunteers help supervise the drop-in center and are responsible for providing a safe and supportive place for GLBTQ youth. You are asked to cover a minimum of one three hour shift per week, and commit to a year of volunteering. The minimum age to be a drop-center volunteer is 24. There is a required three day training that is offered three times per year. Please e-mail the Volunteer coordinator to find out the dates of the next volunteer training.
Cyber Center Volunteers
Volunteers make it possible for Lambert House youth to access computers in a GLBTQ friendly atmosphere. The minimum age to be a Cyber Center volunteer is 24. There is a required three day training that is offered three times per year. Please e-mail the Volunteer coordinator to find out the dates of the next volunteer training.
Support and Discussion Group Facilitators
Group facilitators create a safe space in which youth can converse about life experiences. Standard Lambert House youth groups include Queer Young Females, Boys Who Like Boys, Trans Group and Sex, Dating, and Relationships group.
Meal providers include organizations and individuals who purchase and prepare an evening meal on a regular schedule (ex: the first Wednesday of each month) for 10-20 Lambert House youth and other volunteers. We all share dinner together as a community!
Lambert House is a space in which youth can develop leadership and technical skills by planning an event or activity, supporting a currently existing program, or creating your own adventure! Unpaid internships, school community service credit and service learning opportunities are offered.
