Recommendation: Lifeworks

Alissia Rose-Pait recommends…

A mentoring progrm

Lifeworks is a mentoring program for LGBTIQ youth, 12 – 24 in the Los Angeles area. Applicant youth are matched with trained (by the program) mentors.

They are in DESPERATE NEED for transgendered and transsexual mentors. While a trained male gay may get a mentee, or be on a waiting list for a long time, and lesbians are placed fairly quickly, transgendered mentors are so lacking that they have multiple kids waiting for each mentor. This is a minimum one year commitment.

Please help out our transgendered children and show them that they can succeed, that there is hope, and that there are people who understand and have or are walking the same path as them.

    Sad, I am not nearby. This needs to be everywhere. :( Just going to be glad it’s somewhere though!

    I wish that I was there, but sadly I am on the east coast, and shall be for… The foreseeable future.

    There needs to be an online site where youth can get paired with mentors. Not every community has programs like this…
