Join TransFamilies

There are a lot of ways to be involved in TransFamilies. You can request a membership here to have access to our private discussion forums (after an intake and orientation). You can volunteer. You can even present a workshop at our Gender Odyssey conferences. Learn about all of the ways you can be part of our family below.

There are a number of ways to get involved! Trans Families is a growing community resource—one that needs the skills, talents, time, and support of many. If you wish to infuse your energy into this program, we’d love to have you. Contact us for more info.

As our online discussion forums grow, we want committed, knowledgeable people who can ensure that the conversations are secure, friendly, respectful, and relevant. Moderating a forum is also a great way to enhance your own learning while being an integral part of a rapidly growing community.

Are you knowledgeable in a particular area as it relates to raising a gender-diverse child or offering familial support? Do you wish to lead a particular discussion with others? Have awesome facilitation skills? Submit a workshop proposal, suggest a topic, or apply to facilitate a Gender Odyssey “in-house” discussion.

Financially supporting Trans Families will keep the gears turning and the lights on. We are committed to making this resource financially-accessible to all regardless of ability to pay. If you’d like to make a one-time or recurring donation to ensure that all who need support can find it, we are deeply grateful. Click here to support Trans Families.

As our online video/phone groups grow, so will our need for knowledgeable, skilled facilitators. If you are interested in getting more deeply involved, we’d like to hear from you. Our volunteer facilitators will need to attend online training sessions and monthly debrief meetings, and bring a strong foundation of knowledge with respect to the needs, issues, and concerns so often faced by families of trans and gender-diverse youth.

If you have specific skills, experience, time, and energy that you can contribute, let’s talk! If you have other ideas about possible involvement that we’ve not mentioned, we’d love to hear from you as well.

Please contact us using the contact page. In the subject line, write “Involvement” and the particular area of interest that you have: Donor, Chat Moderator, Conference Presenter, Group Facilitator, and/or Other.

We are excited to hear from you, and we’ll be in touch right away!
