our mission


Maximizing the impact of volunteerism to strengthen LGBTQ+ communities.


We accomplish this through three main programs:


We’re building a network of volunteers for LGBTQ+ causes. Each volunteer has stepped up and made themselves available to meet the needs of the nonprofits serving their communities.


We connect volunteers to opportunities that match their skills and interests. Through our biweekly newsletter highlighting new opportunities and our online platform, TurnOut.org, volunteers can join the projects that are right for them.


TurnOut collaborates with LGBTQ+ groups at high schools, colleges, and companies to build team volunteer experiences. These events support local LGBTQ+ programs and provide an educational opportunity for students and professionals to learn about the most pressing issues facing LGBTQ+ communities and the work being done to address them.
