Peer Mentoring Program: Finding a Mentor

LGBTQ Life is proud to sponsor the Peer Mentoring Program. The Peer Mentoring Program provides support to students who are seeking guidance from a peer in the LGBTQAA community. Our mission is to help students develop their own positive sexual orientation and gender identity through peer-to-peer mentoring. Mentors provide a safe and confidential environment for mentees to explore, question, learn, and grow. Mentees will be matched with mentors who will be most likely to understand the challenges the mentee is facing. For more information, contact LGBTQ Life at

Mentees: Any JHU student with questions about sexual orientation and/or gender identity is encouraged to apply to the program. Our aim is to support students who are questioning, coming out, or who are looking to connect with the JHU LGBTQAA community. There is an application which identifies the student’s specific needs and goals. This information will allow for the mentee to be matched with a mentor who can best relate to them. All information submitted on the application will be kept confidential.

Mentee applications will open in fall 2021. Email with any questions.
