Our flexible schedule gives us the freedom to help others in the community when they are most in need. We are able to share our work skills with community groups in an informal way.
Courtney, HR Manager, Volunteer facilitator at Haven: “I am a facilitator at Haven, a youth LGBTQ support group in Bethlehem and have been there a year and a half.” The group meets every Wednesday from 7-9 at the UCC Church in Bethlehem. More than anything we are there to provide support, and be an ally and demonstrate that there are people in their lives that accept them: adults in addition to their peers.
“Of course, we need to know about resources that are available to LGBTQ youth that are in need and be able to assess if there is a threat of harm. But really our role is to be there to support them.”
