How flexible are positions?
As queer youth, we understand that many of our workers and volunteers are balancing school, family, and other commitments in addition to QYA. For all positions, we are extremely flexible regarding outside commitments, given that you communicate with us in a timely manner to the best of your ability.
We also understand that physical, mental, and emotional health are subject to constant change, and it is impossible to predict how you will be feeling on any given day. Queer Youth Assemble is extremely flexible around needing time off or taking a self care day as long as you communicate with us in a timely manner to the best of your ability. We also offer support in the form of resources and outside recommendations.
