APICHA: GAYME (GLBTQI Asian & Pacific Islander Youth Mentorship for empowerment)

New York City, United States | 2011-03-01 - 2011-03-31

This is just a friendly notice that there are still a few spots left for this year's cycle of GAYME (GLBTQI Asian & Pacific Islander Youth Mentorship for empowerment)!

GAYME is an opportunity for LGBTQ Asian & Pacific Islander young people (age 24 and younger) to spend time with other youth and adults who they can identify with. Our adult mentors are all API and LGBTQ themselves, and come from a diverse range of professional fields, including medicine, social work, finance, education, and fashion. We meet at APICHA every couple weeks to have lunch and talk about topics that are important to us and our communities.

Discussion topics include:

- establishing a healthy identity as both A&PI and LGBTQ

- building supportive networks

- coming out (to family, friends, work, and everyone!)

- financial management after you graduate

- navigating the workplace as an out queer professional

- dealing with bullies

- whatever is on your mind!

So if you are an Asian, South Asian, or Pacific Islander LGBTQ young person who is interested in GAYME, come join us! Our first session is just a few weeks away! Lunch and Metrocards will be provided at each meeting.

You can either reply to this email, or feel free to call Charlie at (646) 744-0990 for more information.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Project Connect was created by APICHA to increase access and improve the quality of health and human services to Asian & Pacific Islander (A&PI) LGBTQI folks, address homophobia and raise awareness of and support for A&PI LGBTQI, and empower A&PI LGBTQI individuals and families, ultimately improving the overall health and well-being of individuals as well as thecommunity at large.

GAYME Youth Mentorship

Project Connect’s youth initiative, GAYME (GLBTQI A&PI Youth Mentorship for Empowerment), connects LGBTQI A&PI youth with other youth and adults to share their experiences. GAYME departs from the traditional one-on-one mentorship style, utilizing an informal, topic-based group workshop method preferred by LGBTQI A&PI youth. These groups will allow youth and mentors to draw upon an array of different experiences to cultivate understanding and build a supportive community. Session topics are concerns identified by LGBTQI A&PI youth and include: self-image, acceptance of multiple identities, coming out, body image, budgeting, getting into college, affording college, career paths, and finding jobs/job security.
