Committees

Our committees are led by Directors of the Board as specified in our By-Laws. These committees operate both independently and collaboratively to ensure accountability and advance CK Pride’s initiatives. Joining a committee provides you with the opportunity to work behind the scenes, contributing to proposal development, planning, and organization. Please note that committee involvement typically demands a more substantial time commitment, along with a greater need for training, knowledge, and dedicated effort compared to general volunteering.

To express your interest in joining a committee, please contact us at info@ckpride.com or use the application form below. Once you reach out, we will initiate the interview process as part of our “Right Person, Right Place” approach.

Volunteer

As a volunteer-driven and operated nonprofit organization, we depend on one another to bring positive changes to our community. There are numerous ways and diverse opportunities for you to volunteer with CK Pride. These options include participating in events, assisting with tasks and maintenance at Bill’s Place, and engaging in committee work. Your level of time commitment can vary, from being available on-call, participating in one-time events, to dedicating several days a week.

You can give us much or as little information as you wish.
Please note that committee work requires a more formal active commitment and ability to engage in behind-the-scenes planning, teamwork, independent critical reflection, and higher levels of responsibility and accountability.
