Volunteer Application: 2019 Gender Spectrum Professionals' Symposium and Conference

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 2019 Gender Spectrum Professionals' Symposium and/or Conference

Please read the content of this application carefully.

The Professionals' Symposium will take place on Friday, July 19. The Conference will take place from July 20-21.

Both events will take place at St. Mary's College in Moraga.

We ask that you not attend and volunteer at the same event. However, if you're volunteering two full days at the Conference, we offer admission to the Professionals' Symposium for the cost of our out-of-pocket expenses ($35). Please let us know if you're interested in this in the last question of the application (Is there anything else you'd like us to know?).

Because volunteers work with or around youth, all volunteers are required to complete a background check (we cover the costs). You are required to submit your legal name to the background check agency, but not to Gender Spectrum. Please contact us with any questions.

You can learn more about the available volunteer positions here.

I will follow up with you after receiving your application. Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering!

Basic Information




We recognize that diversity of all sorts makes the Professionals' Symposium and Conference richer for everyone involved. We also recognize that lack of diversity can limit our perspectives and the service we're able to provide to attendees. We welcome you to bring your full self to your volunteer role.

Please let us know a little bit about you, sharing only what feels comfortable and important.
