A state government-funded GLBTIQ youth leadership program is looking for community mentors. Applications have almost closed for the three year Q&A program aimed at -˜non-straight’ identifying young people between 18 -“ 28 years.
Co-ordinator Abigail Elliot said it would work separately to other youth programs. -œWe’re hoping this program was more for young people who are through that coming out process and comfortable with who they are and they’re at a point now where they want to develop their skills, go out and do things, she said.
-œWe’re calling on people from the GLBTIQ community who are already established and have those skills or able to offer development skills to young people.
Interviews for applicants into the program start August 8.
