QUEERSPACE MENTEES

Are you or do you know an LGBTQ+ youth who needs an LGBTQ+ mentor? Through in-person and virtual 1:1 mentoring and group events, LGBTQ+ youth develop increased self-esteem and a greater sense of belonging, cultural identity, and pride. With monthly events like community art, nature outings, queer history, volunteering, and virtual hangouts, mentors and mentees build relationships, a broader sense of community, and feelings of inclusivity.

Mentors and mentees connect 2-3 times a month, for a year, to hangout, set and accomplish goals, and build resilience through meaningful engagement. Once a month, we bring all pairs together for a large group hangout to build a larger community of connection and support.

1:1 MENTORSHIP IS CURRENTLY OFFERED FOR TWIN CITIES LOCATION ONLY
