At Gendered Intelligence, our youth groups are growing every month. We’re looking for enthusiastic trans-identified volunteers to work alongside our youth group leaders to help facilitate and shape our groups.

If you are aged 18 or over and would like to work with a range of young trans people aged 7 - 25 in cities across England, read on to find out how to apply to become a Gendered Intelligence youth group volunteer.

We run in person as well as online youth groups in London and Leeds.

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.
