The program is a 16 Week (March 1, 2021 - June 15, 2021) program focused on building LGBTQ+ and Ally leaders from ages 12-22 in metro Detroit. Topics discussed will surround LGBTQ Youth Advocacy and Career Development Skills.
The program begins virtually on Monday, March 1, and will have two Zoom meetings per week from 4:30-6:30 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays.
There will be learning modules in addition to the virtual meetings that can be completed in one's own time. Youth in the program will also be asked to help plan a day-long, virtual retreat that will be hosted in June as part of their hands-on learning project. In the event that COVID restrictions are lifted, this portion of the program can be adjusted accordingly.
Youth will receive monthly personal stipends for their participation in the form of gift cards, the process to receive these will be covered in the first week of the program.
