Volunteers!

VISIT THE VOLUNTEER CALENDAR to sign up for shifts.

Untitled designVolunteers are the backbone of the CSPC. None of the events at the CSPC could take place without the commitment of our volunteers.

The Mission of the CSPC Volunteer team is to inspire and assist volunteers to produce experiential events where members can explore their sexual interests in a physically and emotionally safe environment. Our Vision is an energized and enthusiastic Volunteer Team, and an atmosphere in which all members feel that they can contribute to the organization.
The Center for Sex Positive Culture exists because we have members who give their time and energy to make the events happen. Volunteering is the cornerstone of our community culture and the reason why this organization continues to thrive. We are fortunate to have a place like this available to us and it needs people like you to help support its success.

Current CSPC membership is required of all volunteers.

You can help ensure that this resource continues to be available for everyone. By volunteering at the CSPC, you can make a difference at the Center and in the Sex Positive community at large.

As a CSPC Volunteer, you can:

  • Meet interesting people
  • Learn new skills
  • Strengthen your resume
  • Contribute to our community
  • Help shape the future of the CSPC
  • Get in FREE to every event you volunteer, either before or after your shift.
  • Earn credit toward Metal Volunteer Status – and get in FREE to most events!
