Each year, hundreds of people pitch in to help us bring our events to life. And without the support and dedication of our volunteers, there would be no St Pete Pride. If you’d like to lend a hand, fill out the form below and a member of our Volunteer Coordination Team will reach out.
People from the community, just like you! Each year, hundreds of people pitch in to make St Pete Pride happen, and many of those are volunteers.
It takes more than 500 volunteers to build, run and clean up the Pride festival and promenade, with approximately 12 volunteers who work year-round to organize and develop the events.
There are many ways for you to participate at Pride. Many people prefer to contribute in more than one way! Some people prefer to volunteer year-round; others only help out during the event. Please reach out if you are interested in volunteering for a specific planning committee or event. If you have interest in taking on a lead volunteer role during Pride Month, please email email@example.com. A link to view events and volunteer opportunities/shifts will be published on this website for you to sign up beforehand.
We do! We use a volunteer management software that can track volunteer hours for us and for you. We love to thank volunteers who have completed volunteer shifts at our celebrations throughout the year. We can sign off on hours needed for school, as well.
Absolutely!!! Volunteering allows you to participate, meet new people, learn new things and will add to your and everyone else’s overall experiences.
Yes! Anyone is welcome to volunteer for Pride!
We do ask that all volunteers be at least 18 years old at the time of the event, or 13+ if you're volunteering with a parent or guardian.
Most of our volunteers stay for shifts of 2-4 hours. Shift lengths vary depending on the role. A few roles have training sessions that you should plan on attending, and others may include a short set-up or break-down shift. We do not encourage walk-up volunteering, so please use our sign up form to register for your shift ahead of time.
Yes! We have an informational briefing for volunteers to attend along with training sessions. These will usually be the week of the event; the person heading up your committee will reach out to you regarding the necessary information.
Yes! We need your help! A great deal of work takes place during the event. If there is important information discussed in pre-event meetings it will be passed along via email. However, these pre-event meetings usually include door-prizes, so it’s recommend that you come so you don’t miss out!
