Have you ever wanted to advocate for the LGBTQ+ community? Do you enjoy asking questions or solving mysteries? Are you excited to celebrate diversity? We need your help.

YAART is recruiting interns and fellows for the 2017-2018 school year. As a member of our team, you will help to discover and design research that answers important questions about the health of transgender and gender non-conforming young people.

Who can join? Any transgender or gender nonconforming person age 14-26.

No experience in research or healthcare is required.

After completing interactive training in research methods, you will join peers in identifying the issues that are most important to you. The ultimate goal of our team is to design and carry out research studies that will help to improve the healthcare offered to transgender and gender nonconforming young people. Our projects will affect health services both in local clinics and around the world. As a team member, you will gain valuable skills for future advocacy efforts and career development.

Please apply ASAP or contact Katie and Claire with any questions.
We look forward to working with you!
