LGBTQ+ Mentor Program
Our mentor program pairs graduate students who identify as LGBTQ+ with another LGBTQ+ student at Penn State.
Graduate student mentors offer mentees emotional support, assistance setting goals and choosing a career path, and guidance through sexual and gender identity development while encouraging health and wellness through campus and community engagement.
Become a Mentee
Mentees are Penn State students who join the LGBTQ+ mentor program to talk one-on-one to someone about their sexual orientation and gender identity as well as discuss issues related to academics, career, family, coming out, dating, and relationships, other marginalized identities, and campus involvement.
Become a Mentor
Mentors are Penn State graduate students in the LGBTQ+ community who are looking to assist other LGBTQ+ students with their journey through Penn State with special considerations to the student's sexual orientation and gender identity. Mentors also have an opportunity to make strong connections with other graduate students in the community.
