AGE RESTRICTIONS

Volunteers must be 25 or older.

There are no age restrictions for marchers. People of all ages are welcome to march with Out Youth in the PRIDE Parade.


DUTIES

Volunteers will be responsible for the safety and protection of everyone marching with us in the Parade.

This includes, but is not limited to:

(1) Maintaining situational awareness of both our marchers and the spectators and reporting unusual or suspicious activity to a staff member or parade monitor.
(2) Monitoring the health of our marchers, specifically as it relates to hydration and heat-related illness.
(3) Ensure that at the end of the parade our entire contingent continues safely on to the Pick-Up point (Ballet Austin).


ORIENTATION & TRAINING

We will provide orientation and training in-person at 7:30 p.m. on the day of the Parade.

If you have specific questions before that time, please contact Adrian Osella at adrian.osella@outyouth.org or 512-419-1233.


WATER

Please make sure to bring a water bottle. While Out Youth will have water, we cannot guarantee we will have enough for everyone.


ARRIVAL

You MUST arrive at our rally point between 7:15 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

We will not know the exact location of our rally point until approximately 6:30 p.m. so we will email and text you the exactly location of our rally point. We will also have two staff members posted at the northwest intersection of Trinity and 12th St. to meet anyone being dropped off.


DROP-OFF

We will have two staff members posted at the northwest intersection of Trinity and 12th St. They will give you directions to the rally point.


PARKING

Parking will be available for free at the State Parking Garage A located near the intersection of Trinity and 14th St. Entry should be made via Trinity St.

Metered parking is also available around the staging area.

You may also want to park at State Parking Garage N located near the intersection of San Antonio and 3rd St. This will be near where the parade will end.


SAFETY

Out Youth's first duty is to the safety and protection of the youth we serve. For the PRIDE Parade, this duty extends to everyone marching with us.

As such, we will have volunteers marching with us to ensure our marchers stay safe during the Parade. All volunteers will receive orientation and training leading up to and on the day of the Parade. They will also be wearing brightly colored t-shirts so that they are easily identifiable to our marchers.

If you have any questions about safety at the Parade, please contact Kathryn Gonzales at kathryn.gonzales@outyouth.org or 512-419-1233 ext. 1103.


PROHIBITED ITEMS

You may not bring weapons of any kind, live animals, confetti, silly string, air horns, glass bottles, body armor, bricks/stones, water guns, or other projectile equipment.

If you have any questions about these prohibitions, please contact Adrian Osella at adrian.osella@outyouth.org or 512-419-1233.
