Come Out & Volunteer

Volunteering allows a unique way to experience the NHC events.

Our diverse, dynamic teams provide great practical experience, a chance to meet new people, and allow our volunteers to give back to our communities.

New Hope Celebrates is a volunteer driven organization. We have a need for year-round volunteers!

Pride Festival, High Heel Drag Race and special event volunteers who each play an important part in running all aspects of our events.

Our year-round volunteers are usually committee members or Team Leaders, each with their own focus. Team Members commit to 2-5 hours a week, increasing as we get closer to the festival, to support NHC events community-based, logistics, volunteer management, and communications needs.

Our weekend volunteers, who work during the main festival weekend, help make Pride happen at the select locations around town. Weekend volunteers commit to at least 1-2 four-hour shifts, and are able to experience multiple aspects of our events. Volunteers will be given T-Shirts, free passes to attend our events. Students may receive a letter of completion of community service.
