As many of our volunteers can testify, one of the most rewarding experiences with PrideSTL is serving on a committee. Committees provide a volunteer focus, and you become a part of a larger group with the same goal. Joining a committee is a great way to help Pride St. Louis continue our tradition in being a resource to the St. Louis LGBTQIA+ community.
