The journey of building a non-profit. It is a long slow road.
I have been working towards this for 2 years now and things get in the way, I started a business at the same time so that definitely got in the way, but this is too important and it needs a platform.
So, we started and built a board, unfortunately due to the amount of work and the lack of my time we lost most of that board. Now we build again, just a few of us left. But, we are the dedicated few and we now have the support and help of a community strategist. We will get this done.
We are hosting our first Community Engagement Session to see how best we can get this done. We are looking for people from every background. Ethnicity, ability, socioeconomic, gender, identity, age, you name it we want the diversity.
We want to hear from people how we can best help our youth. Our initial thought was the sharing of stories, whether it be written word or spoken. Share with our LGBT+ youth so they know they are not alone, but it is so much bigger then that and we need everyone's input to figure that out.
Step one ask for input and ask for help.
