join our team. Make an impact.

Over the past 3 years, we've connected more than 32,000 people, in 10 cities all across the country, to their cities' LGBTQ community. While doing so, we've created a volunteer network of over 200 LGBTQs who have joined the movement with us and helped our communities to grow. Our family is growing everyday, and we want you to be part of it.

If the following describes you, then you may be a perfect fit:

  • You enjoy making the LGBTQ community better in your city.
  • You are a social, reliable person who loves working towards making an impact.
  • You a born leader who has ideas about where you'd like to see TWC go in your city. 

The Community Manager role is a 13 month commitment (December 1, 2015-December 31, 2016), with two nationwide Community Manager retreats (December 4-6 in Boston and June TBD). They will be fun, we promise. These volunteers are asked to attend our largest takeovers and give 8-10 hours a month (on average) to building the movement.  

A core function of this role is the recruitment, training, and management of the official welcomers of our movement, the Corps. In conjunction with our Community team (Josh and Molly) who oversee all community initiatives from TWC HQ, all Community Managers:

  • Recruit and train a new volunteer base (the Corps) every 4 months (April, August, December).
  • Assist and manage the Corps throughout their tenure.
  • Interface with HQ to stay up-to-date on city happenings, and provide city feedback.

In addition to working together to mentor classes of the Corps, each Community Manager will have an additional focus. They will be the thought leaders of their focus, driving initiatives in their area, and elevating the conversation about how TWC can best accomplish these initiatives in meaningful and inclusive ways. During the 2016 tenure, the Community Managers will play an integral role in developing new initiatives based on these areas of focus. They are:

I’m incredibly thankful for this role—it’s a great way to meet new people and help form new connections in the community.

I have been unbelievably lucky to be a community manager in DC. It has been the highlight of my time in this city to see our community expand through our unbelievably talented and dedicated volunteers, taking over events across the city where everyone feels like a family. Every time I walk into a TWC event it feels like coming home.
