LGBTQ Youth Resources

Mentoring groups as well as schools and religious institutions have young people who are lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender or questioning. The Center for Disease Control has some often dire statistics on these youths, who are bullied in multiple ways.

Regardless of differences, these are still highly at-risk children, teenagers or young adults who need nonjudgmental mentoring (and/or parental) relationships.

Below are two sites. The National Resource Center for Youth Development (NRCYD) has resources for "Youth in Care," but those of us not mentoring youth in care can still learn from the information. The second source is from the Center for Disease Control.


Thanks to Kathy Taylor of Life Launch, a program of Stand in the Gap Ministries, for sharing the NRCYD organization and resources with us. The LGBTQ section is just one important topic on the website.

Life Launch mentors foster alumni in the Tulsa and Oklahoma City areas.
