BECOME A CONFERENCE VOLUNTEER
Being a conference volunteer would involve helping different presenters prep their rooms for workshops, acting as a registrar, assisting exhibitors, as well as general conference support.  Volunteers will have one free block to go to a workshop of their choosing, as well as free registration for the conference itself.  We have a wonderful and dedicated team that looks forward to working with you.

GLSEN Massachusetts needs volunteers: Please join our team! As you well know, schools are the testing grounds where students define themselves and brand others. When not consistently challenged, hate language can pollute classrooms and corridors, reinforcing invisibility and isolation. Building a safe school environment takes years and requires multiple strategies. Our volunteers are critical to achieving our mission of assuring that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. Volunteers organize our annual conference, design our materials, maintain our website, conduct schools assessments, train teachers, and solicit donations for our programs; indeed, they power our organization. We look forward to hearing from you soon. - See more at: http://glsen.org/chapters/massachusetts/getinvolved#sthash.4m27NStf.dpuf
