Volunteer with PPF!

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization

Pacific Pride Foundation's services could not be possible without the help of countless volunteers who selflessly devote their time to our cause. By volunteering at PPF, you are supporting the lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender community and HIV/AIDS clients that we serve in Santa Barbara County.

Interested in volunteering with PPF? We have a diverse need for volunteers:

  • come visit during office hours and answer phones
  • assist with client traffic during HIV Test Counseling hours
  • assemble bilingual safe sex packets
  • assist with targeted fundraising events like the Royal Ball
  • learn more about our elder services programs
  • join an event planning committee
  • assist with advocacy and educational panels
  • find out about our internship opportunities
  • and so much more!

Have a specialized skill or area of focus (e.g. law, immigration, health care)? We greatly appreciate assistance beyond the scope of our regular volunteer opportunities. Please let us know and we'll gladly brainstorm how to offer that skill to our clients in need! 

Complete the preliminary form below to begin the process of registering as a volunteer with Pacific Pride Foundation. Volunteering with PROUD Youth requires Livescanning and a meeting with the LGBTQ+ Outreach Advocate. Volunteers must be over 21 with a valid ID and pass the screening process. North and South County (Santa Maria, Lompoc, Santa Barbara, Carpinteria) adult volunteers needed for summer support and field trips for (90) Days of Summer. And, year round with the fall Coming Home Dance, Models of Pride, PROUD Prom and more. Thanks for considering us!
