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
- NOTE -
We are currently not accepting new mentees for our 1:1 mentorship program. You are welcome to submit an application and we will reach out in October to discuss next steps. In the meantime, please consider applying for our Group Mentorship opportunities which will begin in early October.
Make the difference in your child's life today.
