Be a part of saving lives; changing lives!

Indiana Youth Group VolunteersVolunteering with Indiana Youth Group means supporting LGBTQ and straight ally youth from central Indiana. Whether you work directly with the youth, help plan a fundraising event, or donate dinner once a month, you are supporting a safe space for youth to be themselves, gain confidence, have fun, befriend other LGBTQ youth, and, overall, just be supported!

Give some of your time!

There are all kinds of opportunities to volunteer at IYG.  Whatever your skills, abilities, or interests, we will put them to good use!   

Some of the possibilities are:

  • Chaperone
  • Tutor
  • Programming or group facilitator
  • Art Auction event management
  • Food donor/Meal Prep
  • Administrative help
  • Facility support
  • Help with the prom and other special events

Basics of being a volunteer:

  • Honor diversity by being accepting and nonjudgmental
  • Be a positive role model
  • Assist staff
  • Engage youth and listen
  • Practice safety and confidentiality concerning IYG matters
  • Reinforce a healthy lifestyle

Some Restrictions:

IYG does have an age restriction for those who wish to volunteer directly with the youth. If you were a youth at IYG we ask that you be 25 years old before becoming an activity center volunteer. If you have never been a youth with IYG then you only need be 23. Since the youth age out at 21, IYG likes to have a little age distance with the volunteers and youth.
