There are many ways for Transgender and Gender Non-Confirming New Yorkers to become involved in advocacy and policy.

   

Volunteer or Intern

The New York Transgender Advocacy Group (NYTAG) relies heavily on volunteers and interns to produce programming that will help us advance the lives of TGNC individuals. NYTAG provides a wealth of options to allow you to give back.

Volunteers

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization and we are deeply grateful to those who offer their time to help us achieve our goals.  Volunteer opportunities have included (not exhaustive):

  • Engaging in administrative tasks

  • Hosting fundraisers

  • Staffing special events

  • Mentoring our peer advocates

Interns

Interns come from an array of disciplines and courses of study. From Social Work to Business, students are offered the opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom to a real world setting where their contributions are a vital part of a rapidly growing advocacy organization.

  • Produce a White Paper on issues the TGNC community faces

  • Conduct a needs assessment

  • Supervise a leadership meeting

  • Facilitate a sensitivity training to service providers

If you are interested in volunteer and/or interning with NYTAG fill out the initial interest form and a staff member will get back to you with 72 hours.
