Project SOL (speak OUT loud)

The Problem

Project S.O.L. is a youth program specifically designed for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth & young adults based in the Lower East Side in NYC, at Grand Street Settlement. We are the only LGBT-specific youth program in the Lower East Side (a community comprised primarily of families of color below the poverty line).

Plan of Action

We are continuing outreach efforts to get more youth involved in our program. We plan to reach out to schools, other community organizations, and the neighborhood housing developments to not only recruit more youth for our program, but to work on a community-based anti-stigma/ lgbt education project. So far we have 20 young people involved in our program, and 5 young adult mentors.
