“OUT for Sustainability has been a marvelous volunteer experience, devoid of cliques and cattiness that you might encounter in other queer groups. Board and Committee members open up their homes to host meetings forging strong connections where they share their food and their passion for OUT for Sustainability. I was inspired to become more involved, because you see the personal investment within this group and you can’t help but join in the fun and volunteer.
I feel my time is respected when OUT for Sustainability Committee’s meet. The team leaders are skilled facilitators who allow everyone’s ideas to be heard, politely discussed, and then help the group focus on an agreed course of action. The result of these meetings, is that everyone volunteers to take action and actually follows-through on time. This leadership spills over into each event’s management, making it a very pleasant experience for volunteers and the public. I can’t help but want to volunteer more for this group.”
