Volunteer for the body positive

JANUARY 7, 2019 NOTE: We are unable to take volunteer applications at this time. Please check back at a later date for volunteer opportunities.

Our volunteers support many of the core operations and tasks that keep us running effectively. Unpaid work is invaluable to any solid nonprofit, and we are delighted that you want to volunteer with us. We invite people from the San Francisco Bay Area and cities close by to apply. Our weekly volunteer days are on Thursdays from 10am-3pm and during events, unless otherwise specified. If you are a remote applicant who is interested in volunteering, please be sure to specify your location.

Note that this survey is not a formal interview. Some questions are personal, and are asked in order to get a sense of who you are before we meet you in person. Please answer to the degree you feel comfortable sharing with our team. There are no wrong answers, or expectations of answers. The Body Positive is a co-creative ecosystem, built by volunteers, interns, participants, facilitators, and staff members. We're excited to learn more about you.

Thanks for your interest in volunteering with The Body Positive.
