We Want You!

Apply to Join the Education and Outreach Committee

About

Application deadline: Nov. 10, 2021

 

The Delaware Ohio Pride Education and Outreach Committee is accepting applications for two new volunteer committee members. Our purpose is to:

  • Further DOP’s goal of creating a safe, diverse, and inclusive environment for the LGBTQ+ and Allied members of Delaware County.

  • Plan and promote programs and events that provide resources and education about LGBTQ+ topics.

  • Broaden awareness of our partnerships with local businesses and organizations that support the LGBTQ+ community.

 

Activities include planning and presenting workshops and panel discussions (in-person and online) for local organizations, businesses, and residents; networking with gender and sexuality alliances and advisors at area schools; participating in and organizing promotional activities such as First Fridays; and arranging other outreach endeavors.

The committee meets once a month (sometimes virtually), and committee members occasionally spend 2-4 hours between meetings to plan and organize programs and events. We ask that volunteers make a one-year commitment.

If you have a passion for LGBTQ+ issues, are looking for a way to get involved, and are enthusiastic about working together with a fine group of people, please apply by answering these questions:

  1. What is your experience in planning and/or promoting educational and outreach events?

  2. What do you think you would bring to the table to help Delaware Ohio Pride meet its goals?

  3. What has your involvement been in the LGBTQ+ community?

 

Send your responses and any questions to Martha Filipic, DOP Board member and Education/Outreach Chair, at marthafilipic@gmail.com.
