"I am just started to feel connected -- please, can't we keep the group going?" So said one of the transgender youth in the group, as she considered it's potential ending.
In February, True Colors' Interns launched a transgender youth group for high school students in the greater Hartford area. With 6-8 consistent members, the group is off to a great start - but the interns will be leaving soon.
This is where YOU come in. Do you want to be a volunteer adult facilitator? We are looking for an additional 5 - 8 people to rotate facilitation of the group going forward. True Colors will continue to provide resources, including space and refreshments. BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP TO KEEP THE GROUP GOING!
We will be hosting the first of two, (2) hour facilitator trainings on Saturday, April 7th from 10:00 AM to noon at the True Colors office. The second session will be scheduled for the following week with the specific timing to be determined by the group. Potential facilitators must be able to pass a background check and provide 2 or 3 character references.
People of all genders, orientations, races and ethnicities are encouraged to apply. Our kids need role models, and adults who care.
Will YOU be one of them?
