The Justice & Diversity Center

LGBT Youth Project

The LGBT Youth Project will utilize volunteer lawyers to speak with students at local high schools’ LGBT alliance groups; juvenile halls and LGBT related nonprofits, about: their backgrounds; the steps it took to become an attorney; and some of the challenges they’ve faced because they are LGBTQ.

In some cases, volunteers will talk to the students about the rights of LGBTQ individuals.

Get involved

We are looking for LGBTQ attorneys to volunteer to speak with LGBTQ students about pursuing a career in the legal field.

Email Samantha Akwei at or Rob Depew at for more information.
