Building Supportive Relationships
The Trans Peer Mentor Program provides a safe space for transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse community members to receive peer mentorship as they navigate their journeys of self-discovery and expression.
Mentors are adult volunteers who have experience negotiating life as a trans or gender diverse adult. It is this personal understanding that makes mentors particularly well suited to help others.
Mentees are young people aged 10-25 who want support from someone with personal experience negotiating life as a trans or gender diverse person.
Support transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse community members by referring potential mentors and mentees or donating to support our programming.
Pairing trans mentees and mentors creates intergenerational relationships that would not necessarily exist otherwise.Mentor
Hanging out with another trans person is pretty great. There’s a lot you don’t have to say. If you mention your “dysphoria hoody,” every trans person will understand what you’re talking about. It’s validating.Mentee
