Join The Team

As 2020 came to an end, we had hoped things would look different for The T&Coffee Trans Network. However, we have been amazed by the outpouring of support through the last year and don't want to lose that momentum as we push into 2021.

One of the big features of 2020 was the introduction of #TACv sessions, giving a global community a space to come together. This was not what we expected to happen and it has taken a lot of work to keep it going. So, as we look forward to 2021, we are planning to expand the team and share some of this load.

Now is your chance to get involved!

We are currently looking to find 3 volunteers to work with us as we expand the digital side of T&Coffee. We would like to find 2 people to host T&Coffee TACv sessions and one person to assist with digital media management. We've set out some details below to give an idea of the roles.
