Helpful to the Core
CORE (Community OUTreach Educators) is our peer education program. CORE student volunteers are trained to educate others regarding sexual orientation and gender identity; raise awareness of the LGBT and allies community; and represent the LGBT Resource Center.
CORE student volunteers might…
- Speak on a student panel
- Speak at a high school
- Table at the Bell Tower
- Help set up or take down an event
- Assist with “behind-the-scenes” program support
- Lead or facilitate a program that goes beyond a panel
All Volunteers are Welcome
We welcome all those who wish to help. It doesn’t matter if you are outgoing or shy, experienced or not, we will help you find your niche with CORE.
Prior involvement in public speaking or outreach is not required. Also, no one has to speak on a panel until they feel ready. Students of all sexual orientations and gender identities may apply.
