The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to fund adequate training for mentors of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender (LGBT) adolescents at The Center of Long Beach, California, create educational training for LGBT adolescents, and identify funding sources. A comprehensive review of the literature found that LGBT experience higher rates of suicide, discrimination, isolation, physical violence, and verbal harassment. This writer also found an effective intervention strategy such as mentoring as an attempt to shield the negative experiences of LGBT youth. Relationship building and communication skills are enhanced, creating a safe space for adolescents to share their feelings, experiences, and identities without fear of judgment or rejection. The proposed training workshop aimed at elevating competence, improving the quality of life of LGBT adolescents. The David Bohnett Foundation was selected as a potential funding source. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not requirements for completion of this project.
