Welcome to the Milton E. Ford LGBT Resource Center
We need facilitators!
Position: Student Group Facilitator
Description: We are looking for a few talented and energetic students to co-facilitate in three of our amazing student groups during the 2017-18 academic year! These are paid positions, so you must be eligible to work on campus and enrolled in classes.
Facilitators for L&Q work closely with the Graduate Assistant to plan, develop, and facilitate weekly evening group meetings. We are looking for two student facilitators who would be excited to develop educational content and community-building activities for their peers and to take on a visible leadership role in the LGBTQIA+ student community on campus.
We are also looking for one co-facilitator for T2, our group for students who are transgender, non-binary, or questioning their gender, and one co-facilitator for Ace of Clubs, our group for students on the asexual and aromantic spectrums. The new co-facilitators for these groups will identify in those communities and work closely with the continuing facilitators to plan and support group meetings.
How to apply: Express your interest in facilitating any of the above by filling out the Student Facilitator Interest Form.
Questions?: Contact Marla Wick at firstname.lastname@example.org

From the website:
"GVSU features the Milton E. Ford LGBT Resource Center. The Center is staffed by a full-time director, assistant director and program coordinator. Added to the staff are a graduate assistant, 6 student aids, and a 23-member advisory council. With a vision that includes a strong focus on social justice the Milton E. Ford LGBT Resource Center leaders believe that 'the current economic system does not serve the interests of the majority of people and that economic justice must be part of all our social justice work for the future'".
