Helping us with administrative functions such as organizing our databases, filing, preparing our program space, supervising the computer lab usage, and more is just as important as working with the youth. Pridelines staff is limited and can use assistance on a regular basis. This is a great way to make a difference within the community without too much youth interaction.
Pridelines Youth Services is comprised of several committees which oversee the development and growth of specific branches of the organization. Each committee is chaired by a Board of Director member. If you’re interested in helping Pridelines determine and achieve its goals, joining one of the following committee is a great way to do so.
