How does QT support their volunteers?
We love our volunteers and we want to ensure you get the credit you deserve! In addition to being highlighted on our website and in our newsletters, QT highlights our volunteers on our social media (e.g. Instagram, LinkedIn). We’re also happy to serve as a referral for your upcoming job applications!
In addition, QT volunteers are eligible for QT membership, meaning you get to contribute to key decisions and potentially apply for the board! Drop-in meetings take place every other Thursday at 7:00pm-8:00pm EST.
