Anyone who accepts the purpose and rules of Helsinki Pride Community and its activities.
Yes. All supporters of human rights are welcome, regardless of sexual orientation, gender or any other trait.
We open a call for volunteers two times a year, in the spring and in the fall. Applying is easy through our online application form. Once the application period is over applicants are invited for interviews and chosen new volunteers are given a two day training on volunteering with us.
There is a separate application process for Pride Week volunteers, announced yearly.
Generally our volunteers work in your year-round community activities, or in different Pride Week production tasks from communication and translations to traffic control during the week.
No, you do not have to be a member. Everyone is welcome to participate, whether they are members or not.
For example by showing up any time there are open activities! In case you want to know a bit more before jumping in you can come to one of our newcomer nights, usually arranged once a month, or contact our instructors.
Activities for youth are generally aimed for children over 13 years and arranged in cooperation with municipal youth services. Activities are targeted thematically and according to age.
Our support work consists of one-on-one meetings and closed group peer support activities. For professionals working we offer training and consultations. Please contact Yasmin for more information.
This way we can have a translator present. Helsinki Pride Community does not have funding for translation services, so please note that if you need a translator present you have to book the appointment through a reception centre employee.
