The Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS) and the Calgary Sexual Health Centre (CSHC) organize the Alberta GSA Conferences each year. The conference aims to provide students, teachers, school staff, and community groups the opportunity to acquire knowledge and resources to start, strengthen, and sustain GSA clubs. GSA clubs have been shown to contribute to more welcoming, caring, respectful, and safer learning environments for sexual and gender minority and allied students in schools. The conference connects students and teachers from across the province through a series of workshops, resource displays, and keynote address.
GSA Conference Volunteers are responsible for conference workshop support, assisting with nutrition breaks, conference preparation and registration, and helping to promote the conference across the province on social media.
A Gay-Straight Alliance Conference Volunteer’s average time commitment is 30 hours per conference. The Alberta GSA Conference alternates each year between Edmonton & Calgary, therefore the volunteer position will vary in location, please keep this in mind when applying.
