“Labels Are For Filing. Labels Are For Clothing. Labels Are Not For People.” -Martina Navratilova
The Lifeline Project is a support network for youth ages 13-18 living life in the LGBT community. The goal is to foster a commitment to youth which will promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and reassert a sense of hope in the future. Founded by Greg Day in Raleigh, North Carolina, we have now relocated to Richmond, Virginia.
The group will participate in:
- Different volunteer projects.
- College tours for those looking for opportunities after high school (younger scholars welcomed).
- Various trips that promote bonding and friendships.
“Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished that will give youth the commitment to follow through on the path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.”
- To inspire pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and instill a sense of hope in the future for youth.
- To expand the perspective of youth to make them aware of life’s possibilities.
- To empower youth in establishing goals and following through on commitments.
- An individual is dramatically influenced by their support system.
- To surround youth in a caring, inclusive learning environment.
