We've had a high volume of volunteer applications in recent months. We're thrilled to have so much support, but it means we're working through a backlog of applications and are currently unable to address new ones. Once we've processed our current volunteer applications we'll be ready to accept new ones again.
Do you want to volunteer for Gendered Intelligence?
Gendered Intelligence exists to increase understandings of gender diversity and to improve the quality of life of trans people, and young trans people in particular.
In line with this mission Gendered Intelligence seeks to involve volunteers to:
add value to our projects and ensure they meet the needs of our service users by supporting our staff in carrying out their work.
increase our contact with the community we serve by efficiently managing our volunteer pool to expand relevant services.
provide new skills and perspectives by endeavouring to recruit a diverse cohort of volunteers representative of the many different lived experiences of trans people and the allies of our community.
combat the lower rates of employment in the trans community by up-skilling our volunteers through our available programs as relevant to their interests and additional training as applicable.
build a greater and more inclusive sense of community for volunteers and service users by encouraging applications from isolated trans people from marginalised backgrounds and creating a team of trans people and our cis allies committed to a shared goal of greater trans inclusion.
We induct successful volunteer applicants on a regular basis.
Office AdminTaking part in the Office Admin program will involve volunteering at the Gendered Intelligence Office by assisting with general clerical duties, organising the office and assisting with other day-to-day tasks. Office Admin volunteers can develop to focus on supporting the area of work they’re most passionate about.
Joining the Ambassadors' Network will involve volunteering at internal events by representing Gendered Intelligence to the public at stalls booked at external events and internal events such as our annual conference.
Youth Group Support
Taking part in the Youth Group Support program will involve volunteering at the Gendered Intelligence youth groups by supporting our Youth Group Leaders and creating a safe and supportive space for our young people. We run youth groups for a wide range of ages from 8 to 30 years old. We run youth groups in London, Leeds, and online. To volunteer at the in-person groups, you should live in one of these cities or a short travelling distance to one of them. We also run groups specifically for young trans people of colour and transfeminine young people, as well as extra projects such as a swimming group, Nature Connections and Youth Board. There are also opportunities to help out at our events for young people like camps.
Volunteers must identify as trans and/or non-binary as our youth groups are trans only spaces. To volunteer for any of our TPOCalypse youth groups, you must be a person of colour. To volunteer for our Transfemme youth group, you should identify as transfemme/a trans woman, and/or experience transmisogyny. Applicants must undergo an Enhanced DBS with Children's Barred List check.
