Correspondent, Gender Resources

  • 3-5 hours per week for correspondence duties
  • 1-2 hours per week for communication and meetings with the team
  • Volunteering remotely / online

At the Freedom of Form Foundation, we believe in the right of individuals to express their identities, and to make their own choices that accomplish their goals. This is becoming more important every day. Today’s advances in biotechnology and medicine present a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make sure the future of civilization is accepting, affirming, and embracing of individuality. This future includes tails, potentially sooner than you think!

Whether your reasoning is based on excitement or imagination, dysphoria about something that feels like it’s missing, or anything in-between, we’re supportive and working to make almost all types of identity affirmation transformations possible within our lifetimes.

The Gender Resources project has been creating and consolidating resources and information about gender transition options available to people today, especially in North America and Europe. The first version of our guide is now online. In addition to some basic introductory content to gender, it provides detailed information about medical care available for transitioning such as HRT and surgical procedures.

Now, we are wanting to include more details about the gender discovery process and additional transition care options. We are also excited about including tips on interacting with healthcare providers, pre- and post-care, and potentially even interviews or other content from practicing professionals.

You’ll be joining an exceptional team of accepting and motivated individuals who are eager to help gender non-conforming people along their journey. We would love it if you could join us.

The four most important questions we would ask you are:

  • Does our mission mean something special to you?
  • Do you feel personal accountability for projects and tasks you are involved in?
  • Do you enjoy learning new things, and applying your abilities in new ways?
  • Are you willing to see a project through to the end, within the bounds of your personal health?

Positive answers to those questions are the biggest predictors of success – more important than professional degrees, in our experience. If you can answer yes to all four questions, we strongly encourage you to reach out. Regardless of your career stage, and even if this particular role isn’t a perfect match for your skills, there’s a very good chance we can find something that works.


These responsibilities reflect what you’ll be doing once you get up to speed. We’ll train you on specifics.

  • Reaching out to doctors, therapists, patients, and other people who can contribute expertise or personal experiences
  • Help identify opportunities for who we can reach out to, and how their information or stories can increase the utility of this project.
  • Communicating well with teammates.
  • Frequently working with your manager and teammates to clarify responsibilities and action items.

The essentials for this role:

  • Enthusiastic in approaching people, asking questions, and building rapport.
  • Approachable in text, audio, video, or in-person formats to best suit the other party’s preferences.
  • Good memory or note-taking ability, and/or ability to use audio recording equipment with the other party’s consent, to ensure you get the most out of interactions.
  • Deeply committed to protecting sensitive or personal information if the outside parties you correspond with accidentally over-share details.
  • Ability to work with your manager and teammates to plan, prioritize, and follow through on tasks.
  • Appreciation for the importance of timelines, especially when other people are relying on prerequisites to get done.


Substitutions from totally different fields are probably fine. We’re a big believer in translatable skills.

  • Knowledgeable in gender affirmation processes.
  • Interest in more deeply networking with, and advocating for, people across the gender affirmation space.
  • Some college education and/or well-practiced writing skills.

What you can expect:

  • Supportive and genuine environment, and source of new friendships.
  • Access to tools and resources. If you need something for your project, we’ll cover it.
  • Stretching yourself with new challenges in a growing environment, practicing new career skills earlier than your contemporaries.
  • Seeing your work make an impact, and create something you’re proud of.
