Volunteer opportunities at the GLCC

The GLCC, being a totally volunteer/donations run organization is well aware of the importance of volunteers. Without volunteers, the Center wouldn’t exist, and the GLCC is looking for fresh faces and energy to get involved!

*All volunteers MUST pass their ACT 33 (Criminal Background) AND ACT 34 (PA Child Abuse) clearance checks before beginning service with the Center. If you already have clearances, please bring a copy with you to our New Volunteer training sessions.  If you do not have your clearances you can complete the clearance applications at the training.

Special Events

The GLCC offers a number of opportunities for people to volunteer for events.

  • OUTrageous BINGO: The GLCC’s primary fundraiser is OUTrageous BINGO. There are nine BINGOs a year, and volunteers are asked to help ‘run’ winning BINGO tickets up to the moderator, sell special games, set up the event/break down the event. This is a great monthly opportunity for those interested, and the 400-person event is guaranteed to be a good time!
    For more information, contact info@outrageousbingopgh.org

GLCC Committees

The GLCC needs you to join a committee. Committees are an opportunity to volunteer with the GLCC on a regular basis but don’t demand a great deal of individual responsibility, and all projects are accomplished through teamwork. Committee members are expected to attend one meeting a month, and work on GLCC projects when able. GLCC committee opportunities include:

  • Development Committee- Are you a financial planner? Do you have financial savvy? Development Committee members are involved in grant writing and finding funding opportunities for the GLCC, long term financial planning, corporate/community partnerships, fundraising and capital campaigns.
