Call for trans people who might be interested in being mentors at AKT

The Albert Kennedy Trust, an organisation that helps young LGBT people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, are currently recruiting new mentors - LGBT people over 25 who can commit an hour every week or two to meet with a young LGBT person and act as a mentor – to support, listen, and help them meet their goals.

Uni student? Gendered Intelligence needs you!

genderedintelligence:

If you’re a student at a University in the UK, Gendered Intelligence could do with your help.

Gendered Intelligence are looking to promote our mentoring service in University LGBT societies across the UK. We have a huge pile of leaflets (designed by our lovely volunteer gendertruckery) in our office waiting to be sent out to willing LGBT societies to promote our service.

That’s where you come in. If you’re in your LGBT society committee or you know how to get in touch with them, we’d love for you to act as a point of contact for us to get our information in to your LGBT. We’ll happily post you a pile of our leaflets to take to your society or your student services so that trans students can find out how to access our support.

If you think you can help us, get in touch with us at admin@genderedintelligence.co.uk and let us know what Uni you’re at. If you want to know more about our mentoring service, click here.

Gendered Intelligence Mentoring Service - Free Support for Trans Students in the UK

genderedintelligence:

Gendered Intelligence is now taking on new clients for our mentoring service, which is available to trans students in education in the UK. The service is confidential and is at no cost to the student. This is an ideal opportunity to sign up if you are starting or continuing education in the next academic year (2012 - 2013).

The idea is to provide one-on-one mentoring sessions with a Gendered Intelligence trans mentor, to help trans / questioning students who may be struggling with managing gender issues, experiencing some of the challenges of living as a trans person in education or may have existing mental health issues which are exacerbated by being trans or questioning their gender identity. 

We can provide practical support with social and medical transition (such as assistance with information, name changes, referrals, etc). We can also advise on organisation and study skills, careers, housing and financial information. We can  provide advocacy support - to ensure your needs are met within your university or college, by talking to academic staff / university administration about any issues you you may be having with you, or on your behalf.

For full information see our Mentoring page. If you think you could benefit from mentoring with Gendered Intelligence please contact us at admin@genderedintelligence.co.uk.

Please share widely.

If you’re a young trans person starting University or college in the next few weeks, don’t forget our free mentoring service!
