Is the percentage of homelessness slowly decreasing over time?
Thank you for joining us, Jeannette!
Is there anyone on the call who would be willing to be paid to lead a virtual training for our mentors on this topic? I appreciate this info, but I don't want to take on the responsibility of speaking on these topics when I could engage a dedicated expert. Please let us know in the follow-up messaging? Thank you so much for this!
Thank you for addressing that - about asking about that information of both mentors and mentees
I'm a part of the Big Brother Big Sister Program. My mentee is a 16 year old African American LBGTQ teen. She is not out to me, and I'm not sure if she is out to her family either. Do you have any recommendations on how to be supportive so she feels she can discuss with me? I want to make sure she feels comfortable and in a safe space.
how I can approach to a mentee who don't identified like men or women?
Thank you, that's very helpful. Appreciate it.
& use the ‘they/ them’ pronouns.. instead of trying to pick from ‘she’ & ‘he’
thank was vey helpful!
very true!! some dont like pronouns at all. theyre learning about themselves and we have to learn with them. its tricky business lol
And so easy to do
Thank you for joining us, Lauren!
