Navigating your teen years can be tough for all kids, and for trans* teens the road can be even harder. The Transformers Mentorship Program is proud to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters to bring their rich history of mentorship and their depth of expertise and understanding in creating positive matches.
While transgender youth bring their own specific set of issues and challenges, Big Brothers Big Sisters knows that at the heart of each successful match is an open, caring, supportive relationship with an adult mentor. So many of us wish we had had someone to talk to, someone who could answer our questions and someone who could listen to how we felt. Someone who believed in us and reminded us that we were, and are, extraordinary. Trans* teens will be matched with Trans* adults who can mentor them through the unique journey that they face. These trans* mentors will be a positive influence, able to answer the hard questions, and to serve as role models who inspire our teens to be themselves.
