Learn How You Can Lend a Hand

Capital Pride Alliance is a vibrant group of dedicated individuals from across the LGBTQ+ community. With our diversity, commitment and camaraderie, we welcome you to join us to promote equal rights, support family and community, and to celebrate what makes each and every person unique and valuable.

From the very start, volunteers have played a vital role in the success of Pride each year. No matter what your skill set, interest, or experience there’s a way you can contribute to Capital Pride.  You can assist onsite at an event, join a production team and help in the planning, or serve on the board.

Volunteering is an opportunity to meet new people, share new experiences, and to give back to your community. Plus, it’s just plain fun! There’s nothing like walking through the Pride Parade as a volunteer, working behind the scenes at the Festival and Concert, or helping one of the many LGBTQ+ partner organizations.

If you are part of an organization or sanctioned school group, consider applying for a working grant to raise money for your organization. (Click here to apply.)
