The Volunteer Experience

Volunteering at events is a low-key and exciting one-time commitment. Plus, let’s face it… it’s also an awesome way to meet people. Volunteers at QWOC+ events enjoy a variety of perks depending on the nature of the event; free drinks, admission, and ‘occupational flirting’ are a few. If you’ve got a sanguine personality and enjoy meeting and conversing with new people, or even if you’re an introverted newbie that freaks out at the thought of attending social events alone, we have a position for YOU! 

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never volunteered or been a part of a not-for-profit group/organization before; all you need is a diversity-conscious attitude, a pow wow with our head organizer/volunteer coordinator, and a friendly countenance. 

Send an email to volunteer@qwocboston.org to find out how you can get more involved! Or, sign up below to be placed on the volunteer roster!
