Be a Mentor!

Right now, at this very moment, 47 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth across CT are waiting for an adult to care about them - someone who is willing to invest a couple of hours a week into a young person's future. Someone who is willing to listen without needing to 'fix' anything; someone who is willing to share their own experiences without assuming the young person feels exactly the same way; someone with a sense of humor; someone who is willing to be a mentor in other words.

Where do YOU live? We have kids waiting in Bolton, Bridgeport, Bristol, Danielson, East Hartford, East Windsor, Enfield, Farmington, Groton, Hamden, Hartford, Lebanon, Ledyard, Litchfield, Manchester, Middletown, Milford, Mystic, New Britain, New Haven, Noank, North Haven, North Stonington, Norwalk, Plainfield, Shelton, Terryville, Vernon, Waterbury, West Hartford, West Haven, and Windsor? You survived your adolescence. Don't you think it is time to reach out and help someone else survive as well?

Trainings are coming up next week. Call or email for more information or for an application: 888-565-5551, ext 0. A youth is waiting for you.
