Are you interested in becoming a mentor??
The LGBTQ and Diversity Resource is excited to announce the creation of OUTfront, a peer mentorship program for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) students and their allies on campus. OUTfront will be launched in Fall 2012 and will serve as an important resource for students that are interested in becoming connected with the LGBTQ community on campus. OUTfront is currently looking for students that are interested in applying to be mentors for the next school year. Students must be:

  • Registered for classes for Fall 2012 and Spring 2013
  • Feel comfortable identifying publically as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or an ally
  • Committed to fulfill the responsibilities of being an Out Front mentor
    • Attending Weekly Meeting during Fall 2012
    • Planning and hosting events for new students during August/September (5-8 hours a week)
    • Connecting new students on campus to the LGBTQ Community and Campus Resources throughout the semester as needed

Our spring training for new mentors will be held during the month of March and interested students must be available to attend both for their duration:

  • Program Orientation on Wednesday, March 28th during free period (2:30 pm – 4 pm),
  • Day Long Training Session on Friday, March 30th from 10 am – 4 pm,

OUTfront will provide students with opportunities to become involved in creating a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment for LGBTQ students on campus. Student mentors will gain valuable experience and skills that will help them as they continue their educational and work experience.

If you have any questions about the mentorship program, the training sessions, or anything else, please contact the OUTfront Coordinator, Rene Melara, at newpride@rutgers.edu
