Volunteer Orientation

January 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Would you like to help the Rainbow Center work toward our mission of expanding resources and safe space for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied (LGBTQA) community through education, advocacy, and celebration?

The Rainbow Center is now offering a monthly orientation for folks who are interested in volunteering with us!

This orientation explores:
– the Rainbow Center’s history, mission, and milestones
– the space and services provided by the RC
– privilege and the cycle of oppression
– volunteer opportunities and the RC’s volunteer process

Each RSVP helps the Rainbow Center staff better prepare for and accommodate attendees. Volunteers need only attend ONE orientation.


Volunteer orientations are MANDATORY for:
– weekly or bi-weekly volunteers at the Rainbow Center
– anyone interested in serving on the NEW! Speaker’s Bureau

Volunteer orientations are open to, and suggested for, anyone who is interested in volunteering with the RC in another capacity (at events*, as a presenter during RC Late Nights, etc.).


*Tacoma Pride Festival in July and the Black & White Gayla in November will have event-specific required trainings for volunteers prior to the event.

If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation, please contact the Rainbow Center at (253) 383-2318 or by email at in advance.

The Rainbow Center is wheelchair accessible and offers all-gender, single-stall restrooms.
