So i've been admiring your website from afar for about 18 months now. I have nothing but AMAZING things to say about it. I cannot tell you how many times I've been reassured and felt safe by peoples posts and volunteers answers to them.

I havent really done much volunteering for this website or anything. mostly just admiring from afar [Razz] . But time has now come for me to ask: How can i be a volunteer on this website?

I do have some sexual education history-ish and most of it comes from my love for biology. I am a biology major and forensics minor in a university in new york. I am currently taking Developmental Biology (also known as Embryology) and i am loving every second if it. My plans after undegrad is to apply for medical school.

I may be under qualified and probably not a strong candidate, but i really wanted to ask and give it a shot.

In addition to volunteering here, i was going to apply for a summer job/internship at planned parenthood. I always wanted to counsel and help people. I've been in pretty scary situations and I think i can do a pretty good job at spreading knowledge about safer sex.

thanks for reading [Smile]

Thanks for asking, kitties!

I'm currently VERY behind on going through applications, but you can apply to be a volunteer by filling out the application here:
