Volunteer Opportunities

Last year, over 100 people provided their volunteer assistance to the Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective in some capacity.

We simply could not provide our full range of services and programs without the dedicated assistance of our many volunteers. And because we’re growing, we’re always looking for more committed individuals to get involved. This could be your opportunity to meet new people, help provide valuable services to the community, give back to the community and have fun!
