The goal of the Peer Mentoring Program is to reduce the stress and isolation that many young people experience when first coming out or other challenges of sexual orientation or gender identity. Our mentors support their mentees in a safe, caring, one-on-one relationship while they work on their personal, social, academic, career, and life goals. Mentors are role models, guides, misconception challengers, motivators, and door openers.
