There are currently no open staff positions.
As our meeting locations expand, we are often seeking volunteers to help with kids, and experienced parents to help facilitate the parent meetings. New meeting locations in Bellevue and Federal Way are currently in development. If you are interested in supporting transgender / non-binary kids and their families, we would love to hear from you.
