Group Volunteer Opportunities

The DC Center for the LGBT Community has several recurring volunteer opportunities for groups and teams. In the past we’ve had many teams volunteer at the center including: fraternities and sororities, faith communities, employee resource groups, and sports teams. It can really be any group of people who want to give back to the community and build team spirit and connection through service. Here are some great opportunities for your team:

Your Team Can Join us for Volunteer Night

Volunteer Night is the first Monday night of every month from 6:30 PM to 8:30. Most volunteer nights are spent assembling safer sex kits. This is an activity you can do while sitting and talking with friends, as well as meeting new people. Spaces are limited, please click here to find and register for Volunteer Night spaces. If you are bringing more than 10 people to volunteer night as a group, please e-mail

Your Team Can Provide Dinner to Homeless LGBTQ Youth at Wanda Alston House 

The DC Center recruits a team of volunteers monthly (starting September 2018) to provide dinner to homeless LGBTQ Youth at Wanda Alston House on the second Tuesday of every month.  You and your friends can cook and deliver a meal to the Wanda Alston House.  If you are interested in helping with this project, please e-mail our support desk at, and cc

Your Team can provide lunch for our LGBT Seniors

LGBT Older Adults meet on the Third Friday of every month for a lunch gathering. Socializing is very important for all older adults, but especially for LGBT older adults who more often feel isolated. We rely on volunteers to help us by providing a meal and by staying and hanging out for lunch. Sometimes groups will plan entertainment for the lunch, or bring games. Your team can prepare and serve the meal (remember, we have a kitchen, microwave, and heated buffet style servers, but no oven). If you are interested in this opportunity please e-mail Adam Heller at and cc

Make ‘Clean the World’ Care Kits for Homeless LGBTQ Youth and Adults

The DC Center distributes care kits to homeless youth and adults. The kit includes information about local resources (where to find food, where to shower, where to get employment help) along basic toiletry items (toothbrush, shaving cream, lotion, razor, etc …). We can schedule a specific time for volunteers from your group to come assemble the kits. However, we would require a donation of $750 or more to assist in purchasing the supplies. We would partner with Clean the World (which collects and recycles soap and hygiene products discarded every day by the hospitality industry) to keep costs to a minimum and help your team make as many kits as possible. If you are interested in this opportunity please e-mail

Your Team Can Host a Condom Packing Party
Can’t make it to the Volunteer Nights or regularly scheduled Condom Packing Party? If you would like to host your own packing party at the DC Center we can accommodate you! For a small donation of $500 we can supply you with the condoms, lubricant, and safer sex messages to create the kits. Please give at least 2 weeks notice. For more information please e-mail  Please note, we have limited capacity to schedule these events so we may not be able to accommodate all requests.
