Volunteer Opportunities Now Open for San Diego Pride Weekend

San Diego Pride is excited to announce that volunteer registration for the 2018 San Diego Pride is now open.

Every year, San Diego Pride recruits volunteers to play a key role in planning and executing the Pride Festival, Parade, and other official events and programs.

With over 30 different volunteer departments ranging from parade logistics, festival support, entertainment, medical and more, there are opportunities for a spectrum of strengths and skill sets. Pride recruits an average over one-thousand volunteers to put on the region’s biggest one-day and two-day civic events.

“Pride is a volunteer-led organization and no event we do is possible without volunteers.” said Pride Programs Manager, Bob Leyh. “Many volunteers come back year after year because of the great sense of giving back to the community and relationships developed at Pride.”

Volunteers who complete one 5-hour shift are entitled to a free Pride Volunteer t-shirt, complementary two-day admission to the festival, an invitation to our annual volunteer appreciation party on Sunday, August 19, and access to our volunteer village within the festival.

Volunteer shifts are available starting on Wednesday July 11 through Monday July 16.
