Emerge Adventures is a non-profit adventure and eco-camp established specifically for LGBTQ young adults, aged 18 to 25, who have endured physical or emotional distress due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. Our free, 6-day adventures and experiences are designed to allow campers to overcome both physical and personal challenges, regain self-confidence, and establish lasting connections with others while allowing each unique individual to develop a greater self-worth and appreciation for life.
The Southwest Virginia LGBTQ+ History Project proposes to create a QTPOC History Youth Brigade. The Youth Brigade will comprise several individuals, between the ages of 16 and 22, who identify as LGBTQ+ people of color. The History Project will recruit and hire Brigade members as Òcommunity internsÓ from January to May 2018. We aim to recruit a mix of local QTPOC college students as well as youth from area high schools and the community. Interns will be compensated with funds that we are requesting in this proposal. We do not believe that young LGBTQ people of color should work for free. After much consideration, we determined that both monetary compensation and the title of Òintern,Ó which youth can use on their resumes, are most appropriate for this endeavor.
