QUEERSPACE hangouts

QUEERSPACE hangouts, an initiative of QUEERSPACE collective, is a youth-centric intergenerational mentorship program creating safe, inclusive spaces for LGBTQ+ youth and LGBTQ+ adults to connect as their authentic selves. Through in-person and virtual 1:1 mentoring and group events, LGBTQ+ youth will develop increased self-esteem and a greater sense of belonging, cultural identity, and pride. 

Events

Through monthly events like community art, nature outings, queer history, volunteering, and virtual hangouts, mentors and mentees will build relationships, a broader sense of community, and feelings of inclusivity.

1:1 Mentoring

LGBTQ+ mentors will be matched with LGBTQ+ youth based on youth voice, youth choice, and shared interests. Mentors and mentees will connect weekly to hangout, set and accomplish goals, and build resilience through meaningful engagement.

"LGBTQI-GNC youth are greatly underserved by youth mentoring programs, with few formal mentoring programs established that provide inclusive mentoring services responsive to specific needs of LGBTQI-GNC youth."
