Peer led programs are crucial to Affinity’s development as an organization. For many years, there was no paid staff at Affinity so if it were not for volunteers, the organization would not exist.

Our volunteer led program groups create and run programs that reach particular demographics in our community. These programs are highly tailored and in addition to providing support and programming, create leadership opportunities. We currently have the following volunteer led program groups. Each has its own schedule and contact persons.
