3:00 PM15:00

Northwestern Illinois Gender and Sexuality Alliance Volunteer Training

Reminder that this Sunday, September 24th, we will be holding another Northwestern Illinois Gender and Sexuality Alliance Volunteer Training.  The training will take place at the CTE Academy in Elizabeth, Illinois.  The training runs from 3:00 - 5:30 pm.  There is no cost to attend the training and refreshments will be provided.  The only cost is if you decide you would like to become a volunteer at our meetings with the students.  There is a $10 fee associated with this to cover the cost of background checks.  Both cash and check are accepted.

During this training we will review the mission and goals of our organization--the NW IL GSA--as well as go over basic gender and sexuality terminology, and concepts.  Additionally, the final piece will highlight the various options of becoming a volunteer for our organization, expectations, and guidelines.

You do not need to commit to volunteering in any capacity to attend the training.  Additionally, we welcome all education levels.  No previous training or education on the topics of gender and sexuality is needed.

The training will be lead by three professional educators that are also a part of the NW IL GSA Board.  If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know!
