Scott Grace recently joined us at AMP Learning Day and helped challenge us with thoughtful tips and insights gained from front line service.

The webinar format will provide an opportunity for you to ask questions, so feel free to review his presentation link below and get ready for an exciting, interactive dialogue! PRISM (Pride, Respect, Identity, Safety, Mentoring) PRISM mentoring connects mentors and young people from the LGBTQ2S+ community. These mentoring relationships help young people to achieve goals, overcome challenges and try new things. A mentor understands the adversity faced by LGBTQ2S+ young people, supports the mentee and celebrates who they are.

Research suggests that access to caring adults can help to buffer negative health and behavioural risks for LGBTQ2S+ youth. These youth have also identified that they need access to caring adults who accept and affirm their identities, give guidance, and connect them to needed resources.

Given the multiple barriers that LGBTQ2S+ youth face a program that supports them in finding caring adults is essential.
