Volunteers & Interns


The Queer Resource Center's Volunteer Program is a great way to get involved with the QRC and on campus. By volunteering, students can meet other involved students and learn more about campus while supporting their community.

To get started volunteering, email the Volunteer Coordinator at qrcvol@pdx.edu. The Volunteer Coordinator does not work over the summer - if you are looking for summer volunteer opportunities, contact Kirsten.

Volunteer Opportunities

QRC Support Team

The QRC Support Team is essential to the success of the QRC. This team helps the QRC staff by staffing the front desk, hosting weekly QRC programming, and tabling for the QRC at PSU and community events.

Queeries Speakers Bureau

Panelists share stories and experiences around gender identity, sexual orientation, and other marginalized and intersecting identities. Queeries speaks in classrooms, student groups, faculty gatherings, and other organizations in the Portland community.

Event Planning Committees

The QRC hosts several large scale events throughout the year. These events are designed around student interest. By serving on an Event Planning Committee, you will get to help develop event programming for major QRC events. Please select which events from the below list for which you would like to serve on a committee.

Interest Groups

The QRC is looking for dedicated students to lead identity and issue based interest groups. Interest groups are intended to give students the opportunity to build student support for identity and issue based work on campus.


The QRC can host student internships for students looking for a deeper level of engagement with the center for academic credit. Internships often include working with QRC staff or community partners to complete engaging projects and programming.

QRC Interns can customize their focus based on desired experience. All interns receive weekly supervision, midterm and final evaluations centered around their goals. Internships last for one academic term (10 weeks) unless otherwise negotiated. For questions about internships or to schedule an appointment to discuss interest, contact Kirsten.
