International Volunteer Day takes place on December 5th each year. This year’s global message is “Together We Can Through Volunteering.”

This is certainly true in the case of SPECTRUM! We know that as many as 2,000 2SLGBTQ+ people participated in our programming (all virtually) in 2020-2021. During this time we were running 20 different groups and events each month, and all of these were facilitated by volunteers!

SPECTRUM is grateful for the dedicated support of our volunteers today, and every day! We couldn’t possibly have the impact we do on the lives of 2SLGBTQ+ people in our community without all of their hard work and dedication. 

As we head into 2022, we are looking forward to the possibility of once again offering more in-person programming, but we will also be offering hybrid programming in order to be as accessible as possible to the greatest number of people. Stay tuned for updates as we have them.

If you are interested in volunteering with SPECTRUM please check out our available positions on the Volunteer Action Centre site.



SPECTRUM offers a safe place where LGBTQ2+ individuals can be themselves and find community and supports.
