Some of the initiatives on the horizon include:

Mentor Program – transgender youth will be paired with a transgender individual who has already transitioned and is living successfully as their desired gender. The adult mentor will be screened based on pre-determined criteria and will be required to participate in an orientation. This will give trans* teens the opportunity to see that there is a "light at the end of the tunnel — the right relationship will be mutually beneficial to both parties.

Empowerment Workshop – this one day experience will provide transgender youth an opportunity to participate is empowering, confidence building exercises. They will be able to connect with other trans* youth, learn how to care for their new emerging selves, get their picture taken by a professional photographer and walk away with new found self-esteem and validation.

Ally Moms Training – we are implementing an application/screening/background check process and adding Ally Dads. This process will protect the moms and the kids who are engaged in chats/calls. Training modules will be provided and required for each Ally Mom/Dad so that we can better serve the vulnerable transgender youth in our communities.

Support Groups – the goal is to expand access to parent and youth support groups to multiple geographic regions. The groups will be publicized, open and free of charge. Facilitators will be trained to run the group and have a working knowledge of the various issues facing families in the midst of transition.
