You Are Needed
While The Living Room is dedicated to and focused on working with GLBTQQ youth in Clackamas County, we can't do it without support from adult allies and community members. There are so many ways to support The Living Room and we hope you'll find the ways that work best for you. Opportunities include:
Become A Volunteer: We are always in need of people over the age of 21 to work directly with the youth. For the most part, this means attending drop in for at least two hours a month. At drop in, you'll have conversations with the youth, do activities with them, and provide additional supervision. We also need help with supervision and logistical support at our various events such as GSA Summit, Alternative Prom, and Pride. All volunteers must attend a 3-4 hour training and pass a background check. If you're interested in volunteering, please fill out this application and send it to our volunteer coordinator. If you have questions about volunteering or when the next training will occur, they can help answer those questions. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Join the Board of Directors: Our Board of Directors is a dynamic and dedicated group of people that are passionate about supporting GLBTQQ youth in Clackamas County. Whether they are planning events, applying for grants, or developing and reviewing policies, they are always working toward making The Living Room what it needs to be for GLBTQQ youth in Clackamas County. If you're interested in dedicating your time and talents to furthering the mission of The Living Room through administrative support, please contact us!
Consider Donating: As with all organizations, The Living Room needs financial support in order to provide the amazing programs that we do. We hope that you'll consider donating an amount that is meaningful to you, and that will support GLBTQQ youth in Clackamas County. To donate, please click here!
Other Opportunities: If you have other special skills and talents that don't fall into any of the above categories, let us know what they are, and we'll see if we can find a way to integrate them into The Living Room. We're always in need of help around the office and we occasionally need access to trucks, flatbed trailers, and other equipment. If you think you can help out, but you're not sure how, please send us an email, and we'll see what we can do!
