Women’s Center

GLIDE’s Women’s Center walks with women on their road to recovery from violence, oppression, and isolation. Daily support groups are held and we need women volunteers to help set up and break down the room, serve food, etc. Women of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

Information Technology

It takes a lot of bits and bytes to keep all of GLIDE’s programming running, and IT is looking for volunteers with general skills, to those with specialty skills including project management and security.  We ask that you commit to at least 4 hours a week for a year.

GLIDE Health Services

Glide Health Services (GHS) provides healthcare to un/underinsured patients, and needs volunteers to support our Nursing Case Management program. The requirement is a one year commitment from the volunteer start date. We unfortunately can no longer host student nurses.

Family, Youth, and Childcare Center

Be a classroom assistant in our After School Program! This program takes place on weekdays from 2pm – 7pm.  Volunteers are expected to make a weekly commitment (e.g. every Tues) for at least 6 months. Current TB Test and a Livescan (fingerprint and background check) required, which will cost the volunteer $35. This process must go through GLIDE and cannot be transferred from any other source.

Sunday Celebrations

Ensemble Singers: GLIDE Memorial Church membership required. Bring established singing voice to 6:30pm Wednesday auditions in Room 201.

Celebration Office Reception

Support Reverend Cecil Williams and Janice Mirikitani’s staff and answer phones in the lively Celebration office Tuesday – Thursday from 10am – 3pm, Saturday 9am – 12pm or 12pm – 3pm, and Sunday 8am – 10:30am or 10:30 am – 1:30pm. Familiarity with GLIDE is helpful.

Sales Personnel

Become part of the joyous sales team that sells & inventories GLIDE merchandise in Freedom Hall after each Sunday Celebration.

Sales Manager

Organize and schedule sales volunteers who sell GLIDE merchandise on Sundays in Freedom Hall, and assist with inventory. Volunteer commitment is less than 4 hours a week.

Ushers

Glide Memorial Church membership required. Serve 9am & 11am Celebrations on a regular basis.

Graze the Roof

Help maintain our Rooftop Garden! GLIDE has a fabulous community garden on the rooftop of 330 Ellis Street, where we grow food, flowers and even have a beehive to make our own honey! Garden Volunteer Work Days take place on Thursdays from 10am – 2pm, and the First Sunday of every month from 9:30am – 1pm.

GLIDE Housing

Help with data entry and learn Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) software. This is especially good for people or students who want to pursue a career in social services and case management.

Fund Development

Learn about fundraising! We often need help in our Fund Development office with data entry and various administrative tasks.

Internships

GLIDE offers a wide variety of internship opportunities. You must attend the Volunteer Orientation to start any internship process. Bring your paperwork with you from your school to the orientation so we can see if GLIDE can provide an internship that meets your requirements. Please do not contact us in advance asking if we can host you before attending the meeting. We must see your paperwork and meet you in person before making any guarantees or setting up anything with other GLIDE staff.

SpeakOut

Help serve food and hand out raffle tickets at our weekly SpeakOut. SpeakOut is an open mic in GLIDE’s Freedom Hall, located on the 1st Floor, that happens every Wednesday at 5pm.

The GLIDE family remembers #NelsonMandela, who would have been 100 years old today. Our Co-Founder Rev. Cecil Williams greeted South Africa’s beloved Madiba in Oakland in June of 1990, just five months after his release from prison. . “Our human compassion binds us the one to the other - not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.” - Nelson Mandela . #nelsonmandela100 #madiba #nelsonmandeladay #fromthearchives #cecilwilliams @nelsonmandelafoundationsa @mchammer @goapele @fantasticnegrito @shakasenghor @feliciahorowitz @mglide
Exactly one week ago, a group of GLIDE seniors completed a six-week Healthy Living workshop with our own Ms. Tina Huang. Here is what Tina had to say about the experience: . "I am so happy that we're celebrating with this gratitude ceremony. Congratulation to the seniors who have completed their healthier living workshop. Within six weeks, our seniors learned how to live healthier by coping with their stress and creating positive changes for their lifestyle. I am very proud of them as they showed an interest in learning and dedication throughout the workshop. I hope they can bring this knowledge and apply it in their every-day lifestyle, as well as share it with those who may benefit from this information." . Congratulations, #GLIDEseniors! #healthyliving #wednesdaywisdom
Thanks to this group of #volunteers from @salesforce for stepping up to the plate and braving the onions yesterday! They prepared lunch for hundreds of diners from the community! . "I think it's a really smart thing for Salesforce to do. Not just talk about it – of course everybody wants to be a part of their community, of course everybody wants to volunteer and support causes, but to actually insist on people coming down here on their first day of training – hey, that's putting your money where your mouth is." - Shan Nichols, Systems Engineering Director (not pictured) . GLIDE relies on 75-85 volunteers EVERY DAY to serve three meals to everyone who walks through our doors. #startyourdaywithservice #volunteersf #foodjustice #givingback #stepuptotheplate @benioff @salesforcejobs @salesforceorg @ggundry @joselynmarie1
Yesterday we were pleased to welcome the #SaferInside Planning Committee to Celebration and a press conference with Mayor @londonbreed! Thanks for all of your hard work & commitment to helping people understand the importance of bringing #safeinjectionsites to San Francisco.
