We couldn’t do what we do Wear it Purple without our volunteers. Together, we’re making a difference!  

Why volunteer?

In volunteering you can support our mission by providing us with your unique skills, talent and enthusiasm.

Whether it is a couple of hours a week or a year, volunteering with Wear it Purple provides us and you with some benefits including:

  • Use existing skills and learn new skills
  • Opportunity to make the LGBTQI+ community, and the greater community, a more inclusive and safe environment for rainbow youth
  • Meeting and engaging with new people with a similar mission
