Louisville Youth Group Inc.
A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
Every year LYG has a number of volunteer opportunities that are not apart of our regular schedule. If you'd like to stay up-to-date on all of our volunteer experiences as they grow and evolve, join our mailing list.
Pride - LYG participates in all of Kentuckiana's major Pride events. Each year we encourage volunteers and supporters to march in parades, represent LYG at events, and help plan and run the Louisville Pride Festival Family Zone. If you'd like to run an activity or experience for the Family Zone, fill out our LPF Family Zone form.
Glitter Gala - The Glitter Gala is LYG's 21+ annual fundraising extravaganza. LYG is dedicated to featuring Kentucky and Indiana Queer artists and performers, support local business, and create a welcoming space to celebrate the work of LYG and the people who make that work possible. Our Gala is an evolving event, and we have awesome experience and surprises meant to bring the community closer together, an celebrate all of the people who make up our LGBTQ+ family. LYG invites volunteers to join the Gala planning committee, or to help manage logistics the day of the event.
Pasta Dinner and Talent Show - Every year our youth work together with staff and volunteers to plan, and host LYG's annual Pasta Dinner and Talent Show. This is the community's favorite LYG fundraiser and it requires a lot of hands working together to make it happen. Keep your eyes and ears open to find out how to support this event each year.
Queer Prom - Every year on the last Friday in June, LYG throws our inclusive Queer Prom. Anyone ages 13-20 is welcome to join us for tasty food, electric entertainment, and a dynamic DJ. We always need a strong setup crew, group of chaperones, and a willing clean up group.
Leadership Camp - Each Fall LYG takes our youth on a weekend trip to a local campground to offer them the opportunity to build stronger relationships, develop their leadership skills and experience nature. There are a lot of pre-camp errands and tasks that volunteers can support, and we're always looking for reliable volunteers to chaperone. (Chaperones need to pass a background check and do a short training with our program team before leaving for camp)
NYE Youth Lock-in - NYE is the perfect night for an overnight party. LYG offers youth a safe, and fun filled night to celebrate the New Year! LYG can always use help preparing for the lock-in, and we always need chaperones to spend the night. (Chaperones need to pass a background check and do a short training with our program team before the lock-in)
