TurnOut connects volunteers with LGBTQ+ causes. Our mission is to support the vibrant infrastructure of queer nonprofits and to promote volunteerism and community engagement among LGBTQ+ people and allies.
We work to accomplish our mission in three ways:
1) Outreach to LGBTQ+ groups at high schools, colleges, businesses and the broader community to build a community of volunteers who support queer nonprofits.
2) Outreach to the full spectrum of nonprofits supporting the queer community, with an emphasis on nonprofits led by and working with transgender people and queer people of color.
3) Provide opportunities for volunteers and nonprofits to find each other, both through TurnOut’s online platform and through volunteer placements for LGBTQ+ groups at schools and businesses.
Through outreach to both volunteers and nonprofits, TurnOut works to ensure queer nonprofits have the volunteers they need and that volunteers can support organizations working on the issues they care about.
TurnOut is currently operating across the Bay Area, with plans to expand to Los Angeles and additional cities in 2018. If you are interested in getting involved, please get in touch by writing email@example.com!
