Volunteers Needed for the Gender Spectrum Conference

Feb 12, 2019

Our annual Conference and Professionals’ Symposium will take place this year on Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21 at St. Mary’s College of California in Moraga, and we need you to help make these events a success!

Last year, nearly 1,000 people attended the weekend Conference, which includes adult workshops on gender and supportive practices, programs for all ages, from infants to High School students. The Conference is preceded by a Friday Professionals’ Symposium for all youth-serving professionals who are interested in the latest strategies for gender-inclusive programs and gender-affirming practices.

Volunteers truly make these events possible. Volunteering is a great way to experience the events, meet incredible experts in the field, and share conversations with others who work with families with Transgender, nonbinary, and Gender-expansive children. Even more, it’s an opportunity to serve as a role model for young people and to make a lasting impact on the youth who attend.

We need volunteers who have experience working with youth, and we also need help with art, facilities/AV support, Spanish translation, registration and general support. We strongly encourage transgender, Non-binary and gender-expansive people to apply, especially for working with our youth programs.

If you or anyone you know are interested in volunteering or learning more, please see our volunteer application here.
