Trans Peer Mentoring Program
We pair transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse mentees with similarly identified, experienced mentors in Oakland and surrounding areas. These mentorship pairings provide mentees with a safe space to discuss issues of interest, to feel heard and affirmed by a supportive role model, and to receive assistance in processing their journey of self discovery and expression. If you are interested in participating, check out our Frequently Asked Questions and send the appropriate application materials to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be added to our waitlist.

Pairs meet 1-on-1 about twice a month. Our model addresses the need for trans youth to see themselves mirrored by successful trans adults in a non-stigmatizing setting.
Mentors are adult volunteers who have experience negotiating life as a trans or gender diverse adult. It is this personal understanding that makes mentors particularly well suited to help others.
