THE STORY:

The Discover U Project offers engaging programs that build resilience and enhance the likelihood of life success for 13 - 24 year-old LGBTQA people. We believe that positive, fun, affirming programs will reduce the likelihood of suicide, homelessness, and addiction. *Discover U Project - attend camps, go on adventures, learn from a mentor, be part of a supportive community. *Discover U - develop life-skills and positive self-identity, belong. *Discover - nature & outdoor pursuits, the arts, sport, music, dance, science, technology... your interests & passions. The Discover U Project addresses suicide, homelessness, and addiction by providing positive development experiences that build resilience and empower young LGBT people and their allied peers. Discover U Programs include camps (age 13-17), adventures (age 18-24), learning from a mentor, and being part of a supportive community. The focus is on individual interests and abilities in ord er to build life-skills and positive self-awareness. Program options begin with a foundation in nature & outdoor pursuits, and will soon include the arts, sport, music, dance, science, and technology. We are a start-up Non-Profit 501(c)(3), and we are in need of funds to get the ball rolling - Every dollar counts, please consider helping us. In 2013, there were 4,878 suicides among LGBT youth aged 15-24, 4 times greater than their straight identifying peers. The population of youth and young adults in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities have disproportionally high rates of suicide, homelessness, and drug addiction when compared to their peers. As the unprecedented progress of civil rights for LGBT Americans continues, there is an increasing awareness of the extent to which these young people are the targets of bullying and loneliness. The subsequent risks of drug addiction and suicide are very real. Please call or email us if you have any questions... and thank you in advance for your love and support.
