How to Become an RC Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in being a volunteer at Rainbow Cafe! Being a volunteer allows us to open our doors every Friday night to LGBT youth in Southern Illinois. Without the hard work from our volunteers, the Rainbow Café would not be able to flourish.

As a volunteer, you work with the manager and fellow volunteers to supervise youth and ensure a safe and supportive environment on Friday nights. To be an active volunteer on our team, you must commit to volunteering from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on a Friday night once per month and to attending a staff meeting once every three months.

All applicants must be 21 years or older, pass a DCFS background check, and be passionate about supporting LGBTQQIA youth.

Once your application is received, it will be reviewed and you will be sent more information about our decision.

We look forward to seeing you at RC.
