I hope you had a wonderful summer!  Hard to believe it is over so quickly, but that means it is time to start planning for the Annual True Colors Conference which will be held on Friday, March 16 and Saturday, March 17, 2018. Our 25th anniversary conference theme is "Then, Now and Next". 

There are many ways you can get involved.  I listed them below. I hope you will spread the word and join us!  You know that volunteers are the lifeblood of the conference - we can't do it without YOU!

Options (choose any or all!)

  1. Offer a workshop.  The workshop proposal forms are ready.  There are two different forms.  One is for YOUTH ONLY Audiences (use this one if your target audience is middle or high school students) and All Other Audiences (use this one for college, general, professional, parents and caregivers, activist institute and spiritual institute audiences)  Please read these guidelines first
  2. Participant in the General Organizing meetings:  Meet once a month at UCONN in the Rainbow Center (dates below).  These volunteers brainstorm ideas, get trained and help train other volunteers, help solve ethical questions and have fun doing it.
