The LGBTQA Student Resource Center revitalizes the mentorship program

September 14, 2015

Would you like to give back to the LGBTQ community? 

Would you like to help someone navigate life at Penn State as a person who is LGBTQ?

The LGBTQA SRC is looking for graduate students and underclassmen who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Queer to participate in the Mentorship Program. 

This program pairs students who are coming out and exploring their identity as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning individuals with trained graduate students who are knowledgeable and self-accepting of their LGBTQ identity. Mentors assist mentees by encouraging health and wellness through campus and community involvement. Both initial and continued training is provided. Being a mentor is a rewarding experience!

Additionally, LGBTQA SRC is looking for mentees.  By taking advantage of this program you can benefit by being able to talk to someone about being a queer student at Penn State.  Are you questioning or curious about the LGBTQ community and where you fit in? Are you having trouble finding your way academically? This is the program for you!  A mentor can help you answer these and other questions you may have about life and the LGBTQ community.

If you identify as LGBTQ or questioning and are interested in either of these programs, visit http://studentaffairs.psu.edu/lgbtqa/mentorship.shtml

Additional questions can be directed to lgbtqa@psu.edu or 814-863-1248.
