LifeWorks Mentorship Program - Los Angeles LGBT Center

No organization offers a wider range of services for LGBT and questioning youth than the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

Whether you’re one of the thousands of LGBT young people experiencing homelessness in L.A., you’re looking for an adult mentor, you’re not feeling safe at school, or you just want a fun and welcoming space to connect with others your age, we can help.

Be sure to check out our annual Models of Pride conference—it’s the world’s largest free conference for LGBTQ youth.

Youth LifeWorks Mentorship Program

Meet Gwen

The Center taught me not to be scared about who I am.

LifeWorks one-on-one mentoring program offers LGBTQ youth the opportunity to be matched with an adult in our community who will support them in goal setting through five achievement areas: home, health, education, career, and personal development. 

We train each mentor with skills to be there for their mentee—not as parents or teachers, but as people who are there to guide them in being their absolute best selves. The lifelong bond between a mentor and a mentee begins with a 12-month commitment to our program.
