My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for True Colors, Inc., Hartford, CT, USA
I have been a mentor and involved with True Colors for a few years now and this organization is top notch in the quality of training, care and expertise offered to the children they protect, the community they serve and the public they seek to educate. As a mentor, I have extended myself and become a living, breathing, positive representation of a future for our LGBT youth. I have also heard stories and been witness to the resiliency of our youth, when given the right tools of love, support and affirmation for their existence.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the True Colors Conferences held annually at UCONN in Storrs, CT
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give them all the funding they needed to keep creating change and safe space.

I have met lots of new friends, networking contacts, but most important, great kids.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
Absolutely amazing. There is so much energy in our community and with our kids, especially when they are in a space that is open, loving and affirming.
