Peer Mentoring Program: Mentor Application

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.

Mentors: All mentors are JHU students who identify as LGBTQA or as an ally. Mentors are knowledgeable about coming out issues, and how they interact with race, culture, religion, gender, etc. Mentors must apply, go through an interview process, and participate in a training program before they begin mentoring. Training provides mentors with the necessary and effective skills needed to help mentees through their process.


Our mentor application will reopen in fall 2021. Email with any questions.
