Day 2 – Mentor
Mentor a trans teen.
Even trans and gender non-binary youth who have supportive parents can use more adult support and contact. Some of the actions you can take include:
- Finding out if your local Gay/Straight Alliance uses adult mentors, speakers, or volunteers. Check https://www.gsanetwork.org/national-directory to find the GSAs near you.
- No GSA near you? Consider helping start one: https://www.gsanetwork.org/get-involved/change-nation/start-gsa-network-your-state
- See if your local LGBT Community Center runs a program for LGBTQ youth where you can volunteer. Don’t know if there’s a Community Center near you? Check out http://www.lgbtcenters.org/Centers/find-a-center.aspx
- Don’t let geography get in your way of connecting with trans youth? Learn more about Trans Mentors International at http://www.transmentors.org
