For our LGBT family, think back to your teenage years and ask yourself if it would have been easier to have a mentor available to you? Someone who understands, who has gone through a similar situation, and who truly cares and can be there for you to help you through this challenging time in your life? This is what we want to provide to our youth. We want to reinforce the importance of education, solid friendships, and supportive and healthy relationships.
How can you help? We are a nonprofit tax exempt organization with the State of Texas but we need funds to pay for start-up cost and business fees (i.e. tax-exempt status, website operation cost, background and drug screening checks, and production of printed materials) as well as fees for mentor training and social activities to enrich the opportunities for mentors and youths.
We are currently accepting online donations via GoFundMe.com at the following link: GoFundMe.Com/Optyouth
