About

We provide monthly support groups for parents of transgender children of all ages. While the parents are meeting to learn more about gender issues and how to best support their children, we have fun play groups for the kids! Ranging in age from K-12, these kids are excited to join these groups and, for many, it is the first time they feel completely accepted and normal! We need a number of volunteers who can dedicate one or two Sundays a month (for approx 3 hours) for a minimum of 6 months. Volunteers must also be available for our three day GO Kids Camp (no overnights) Aug 10-12, 2018. We want some consistent, friendly faces for these amazing kids!

In addition to spending time with our children, several learning opportunities and events are included. Topics may include things like an intro session to trans children & their families, best practices for medical & mental health care, gender inclusion in k-12 schools, guest panel speakers, and so on.
