Mission

Our mission is to protect LGBTQ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently.

Activities

Our Peer Outreach Educator Internship offers an opportunity for AFC clients to support their peers while creating their own work history. Because these youth have themselves once been homeless, they can quickly develop trust and a rapport with other homeless LGBTQ youth. Our Peer Educators inform LGBTQ homeless youth on safer sex practices, coach them on how to reduce HIV/STI transmission, and much more.

Before beginning their internship, Peer Educators participate in an intensive, week-long training to ensure that they are well-equipped to handle whatever situation may arise in the outreach. Upon completion of the internship, Peer Educators are paid a stipend.

Eligibility

Lgbtq Youth.
