About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

youth era presents

online virtual peer support for youth and young adults

Join YouthERA online via Discord, Twitch, Instagram, Tik Tok, Facebook and more!

1) Virtual Drop on Discord Weekdays M-F, 3-6pm PST

During Virtual Drop hours, youth can access multiple chat rooms, participate in video game competitions, take cooking classes, do mindfulness exercises, and watch movies, among other activities.

Visit the link: https://discord.com/invite/4n4h2K4

2) Twitch Stream – Weekdays M-F, 10am-1pm and 6pm-10pm PST

YouthEra’s Twitch stream provides a safe and supportive opportunity for youth to have fun, receive peer support, and build community online. Any time a young person tunes in, they will have access to (at least) two youth peer support specialists, one who will be streaming and the other moderating the chat.

Visit this link: https://www.twitch.tv/youthera

3) Instagram “Don’t @ Me” LIVE Show – Thursdays 1-2pm PST

Join YouthERA live on Instagram every Thursday from 1:00 – 2:00 pm PST. “Don’t @ Me” is a live show where Youth Era staff host conversations with digital influencers, community activists, and creators of all kinds. This is a community where all participants can feel heard, seen, and valued as we talk about the things that matter. Tune in to learn something new, make friends, receive support, and have fun!

Visit this link: https://www.instagram.com/theyouthera/?hl=en

4) One on One Virtual Peer Support

One of the most important ways our team of dedicated peer support specialists connects with youth is through one-on-one meetings, but sometimes it’s not possible to meet in person. The good news is that our team has been providing virtual peer support from the very beginning! Our team of state-certified direct service staff (youth peer support specialists and Wraparound youth partners) can provide one-on-ones via phone/text, through video chat, and over their various Youth Era-issued social media accounts including Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook. If you, or someone you know, is in need of one-on-one support, please click the link below to find the Program Manager in your region.

About YouthERA

Excerpts last viewed online 2020 Jun 15 from:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

Telephone Peer Support – Trans Lifeline Saving Lives – 877-565-8860 – Weekdays and Weekends @ United States and Canada
Jul 6 all-day

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.

  1. Ongoing Zoom Drop-In Groups, Mondays-Fridays
  • Brunch Club: 11 am- Noon; Afternoon Snack Break: 3-4 pm
  • FREE – Registration Required for first meeting
  • That’s right! After-school drop-in is going digital! Join us for Drop-In Groups every weekday to socialize and check in with girls you’ve missed from in-person drop-in, and welcome girls new to Ophelia’s Place!

  1. Ongoing Zoom Drop-In Groups, Mondays-Fridays
  • Brunch Club: 11 am- Noon; Afternoon Snack Break: 3-4 pm
  • FREE – Registration Required for first meeting
  • That’s right! After-school drop-in is going digital! Join us for Drop-In Groups every weekday to socialize and check in with girls you’ve missed from in-person drop-in, and welcome girls new to Ophelia’s Place! We’ll talk about how things are going at home, chat about any topics or issues on your mind, and bring some ideas direct to you. (Bring your mid-morning/afternoon snack with you!)

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

Telephone Peer Support – Trans Lifeline Saving Lives – 877-565-8860 – Weekdays and Weekends @ United States and Canada
Jul 8 all-day

logo

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

Trans Lifeline is training Spanish speaking volunteers who identify as transgender and want to support the Translatinx community by being a volunteer operator for our dedicated Spanish hotline. This line will launch this summer.

online virtual peer support for youth and young adults

Join YouthERA online via Discord, Twitch, Instagram, Tik Tok, Facebook and more!

1) Virtual Drop on Discord Weekdays M-F, 3-6pm PST

During Virtual Drop hours, youth can access multiple chat rooms, participate in video game competitions, take cooking classes, do mindfulness exercises, and watch movies, among other activities.

Visit the link: https://discord.com/invite/4n4h2K4

2) Twitch Stream – Weekdays M-F, 10am-1pm and 6pm-10pm PST

YouthEra’s Twitch stream provides a safe and supportive opportunity for youth to have fun, receive peer support, and build community online. Any time a young person tunes in, they will have access to (at least) two youth peer support specialists, one who will be streaming and the other moderating the chat.

Visit this link: https://www.twitch.tv/youthera

3) Instagram “Don’t @ Me” LIVE Show – Thursdays 1-2pm PST

Visit this link: https://www.instagram.com/theyouthera/?hl=en

4) One on One Virtual Peer Support

One of the most important ways our team of dedicated peer support specialists connects with youth is through one-on-one meetings, but sometimes it’s not possible to meet in person. The good news is that our team has been providing virtual peer support from the very beginning! Our team of state-certified direct service staff (youth peer support specialists and Wraparound youth partners) can provide one-on-ones via phone/text, through video chat, and over their various Youth Era-issued social media accounts including Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook.

About YouthERA

Excerpts last viewed online 2020 Jun 15 from:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

Telephone Peer Support – Trans Lifeline Saving Lives – 877-565-8860 – Weekdays and Weekends @ United States and Canada
Jul 9 all-day

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

Trans Lifeline is training Spanish speaking volunteers who identify as transgender and want to support the Translatinx community by being a volunteer operator for our dedicated Spanish hotline. This line will launch this summer.

About YouthERA

Excerpts last viewed online 2020 Jun 15 from:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

4) One on One Virtual Peer Support

One of the most important ways our team of dedicated peer support specialists connects with youth is through one-on-one meetings, but sometimes it’s not possible to meet in person. The good news is that our team has been providing virtual peer support from the very beginning! Our team of state-certified direct service staff (youth peer support specialists and Wraparound youth partners) can provide one-on-ones via phone/text, through video chat, and over their various Youth Era-issued social media accounts including Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook. If you, or someone you know, is in need of one-on-one support, please click the link below to find the Program Manager in your region.

About YouthERA

Excerpts last viewed online 2020 Jun 15 from:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

How Can I Serve? with Sarah Knutson at Peerly Human – Friday @ Online via Zoom
Jul 10 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Peerly Human and the Wellness/Recovery Human Rights Campaign presents
“How Can I Serve?”
Share a space this Friday for those who feel called, tickled, interested or just curious.
Hoping to share experience I have had where spoken words are less about “thoughts” and “ideas” and more about “experience in the moment,”  “lived experience,”…
What am I sensing?  Right Now?  Where in my body?
What is the “headline” (short statement) that is about my thoughts?
By avoiding  too much “thinking” that allows more space for the emergence of what we do not yet know (about ourselves, each other and so on).
If you are interested and have more ideas to share I welcome them.

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

4) One on One Virtual Peer Support

One of the most important ways our team of dedicated peer support specialists connects with youth is through one-on-one meetings, but sometimes it’s not possible to meet in person.

Our team of state-certified direct service staff (youth peer support specialists and Wraparound youth partners) can provide one-on-ones via phone/text, through video chat, and over their various Youth Era-issued social media accounts including Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook.

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

Telephone Peer Support – Trans Lifeline Saving Lives – 877-565-8860 – Weekdays and Weekends @ United States and Canada
Jul 14 all-day

logo

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

Trans Lifeline is training Spanish speaking volunteers who identify as transgender and want to support the Translatinx community by being a volunteer operator for our dedicated Spanish hotline. This line will launch this summer.

youth era presents

online virtual peer support for youth and young adults

Join YouthERA online via Discord, Twitch, Instagram, Tik Tok, Facebook and more!

1) Virtual Drop on Discord Weekdays M-F, 3-6pm PST

During Virtual Drop hours, youth can access multiple chat rooms, participate in video game competitions, take cooking classes, do mindfulness exercises, and watch movies, among other activities.

Visit the link: https://discord.com/invite/4n4h2K4

2) Twitch Stream – Weekdays M-F, 10am-1pm and 6pm-10pm PST

YouthEra’s Twitch stream provides a safe and supportive opportunity for youth to have fun, receive peer support, and build community online. Any time a young person tunes in, they will have access to (at least) two youth peer support specialists, one who will be streaming and the other moderating the chat.

Visit this link: https://www.twitch.tv/youthera

3) Instagram “Don’t @ Me” LIVE Show – Thursdays 1-2pm PST

Join YouthERA live on Instagram every Thursday from 1:00 – 2:00 pm PST. “Don’t @ Me” is a live show where Youth Era staff host conversations with digital influencers, community activists, and creators of all kinds. This is a community where all participants can feel heard, seen, and valued as we talk about the things that matter. Tune in to learn something new, make friends, receive support, and have fun!

Visit this link: https://www.instagram.com/theyouthera/?hl=en

4) One on One Virtual Peer Support

One of the most important ways our team of dedicated peer support specialists connects with youth is through one-on-one meetings, but sometimes it’s not possible to meet in person. The good news is that our team has been providing virtual peer support from the very beginning! Our team of state-certified direct service staff (youth peer support specialists and Wraparound youth partners) can provide one-on-ones via phone/text, through video chat, and over their various Youth Era-issued social media accounts including Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook. If you, or someone you know, is in need of one-on-one support, please click the link below to find the Program Manager in your region.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

Telephone Peer Support – Trans Lifeline Saving Lives – 877-565-8860 – Weekdays and Weekends @ United States and Canada
Jul 15 all-day

logo

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

Trans Lifeline is training Spanish speaking volunteers who identify as transgender and want to support the Translatinx community by being a volunteer operator for our dedicated Spanish hotline. This line will launch this summer.

online virtual peer support for youth and young adults

Join YouthERA online via Discord, Twitch, Instagram, Tik Tok, Facebook and more!

1) Virtual Drop on Discord Weekdays M-F, 3-6pm PST

During Virtual Drop hours, youth can access multiple chat rooms, participate in video game competitions, take cooking classes, do mindfulness exercises, and watch movies, among other activities.

Visit the link: https://discord.com/invite/4n4h2K4

2) Twitch Stream – Weekdays M-F, 10am-1pm and 6pm-10pm PST

YouthEra’s Twitch stream provides a safe and supportive opportunity for youth to have fun, receive peer support, and build community online. Any time a young person tunes in, they will have access to (at least) two youth peer support specialists, one who will be streaming and the other moderating the chat.

Visit this link: https://www.twitch.tv/youthera

3) Instagram “Don’t @ Me” LIVE Show – Thursdays 1-2pm PST

Join YouthERA live on Instagram every Thursday from 1:00 – 2:00 pm PST. “Don’t @ Me” is a live show where Youth Era staff host conversations with digital influencers, community activists, and creators of all kinds. This is a community where all participants can feel heard, seen, and valued as we talk about the things that matter. Tune in to learn something new, make friends, receive support, and have fun!

Visit this link: https://www.instagram.com/theyouthera/?hl=en

4) One on One Virtual Peer Support

One of the most important ways our team of dedicated peer support specialists connects with youth is through one-on-one meetings, but sometimes it’s not possible to meet in person. The good news is that our team has been providing virtual peer support from the very beginning! Our team of state-certified direct service staff (youth peer support specialists and Wraparound youth partners) can provide one-on-ones via phone/text, through video chat, and over their various Youth Era-issued social media accounts including Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook.

About YouthERA

Excerpts last viewed online 2020 Jun 15 from:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth.

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

How Can I Serve? with Sarah Knutson at Peerly Human – Friday @ Online via Zoom
Jul 17 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Peerly Human and the Wellness/Recovery Human Rights Campaign presents
“How Can I Serve?”
Share a space this Friday for those who feel called, tickled, interested or just curious.
Hoping to share experience I have had where spoken words are less about “thoughts” and “ideas” and more about “experience in the moment,”  “lived experience,”…
What am I sensing?  Right Now?  Where in my body?
What is the “headline” (short statement) that is about my thoughts?
By avoiding  too much “thinking” that allows more space for the emergence of what we do not yet know (about ourselves, each other and so on).
If you are interested and have more ideas to share I welcome them.

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

online virtual peer support for youth and young adults

Join YouthERA online via Discord, Twitch, Instagram, Tik Tok, Facebook and more!

1) Virtual Drop on Discord Weekdays M-F, 3-6pm PST

During Virtual Drop hours, youth can access multiple chat rooms, participate in video game competitions, take cooking classes, do mindfulness exercises, and watch movies, among other activities.

Visit the link: https://discord.com/invite/4n4h2K4

2) Twitch Stream – Weekdays M-F, 10am-1pm and 6pm-10pm PST

YouthEra’s Twitch stream provides a safe and supportive opportunity for youth to have fun, receive peer support, and build community online. Any time a young person tunes in, they will have access to (at least) two youth peer support specialists, one who will be streaming and the other moderating the chat.

Visit this link: https://www.twitch.tv/youthera

3) Instagram “Don’t @ Me” LIVE Show – Thursdays 1-2pm PST

Visit this link: https://www.instagram.com/theyouthera/?hl=en

4) One on One Virtual Peer Support

One of the most important ways our team of dedicated peer support specialists connects with youth is through one-on-one meetings, but sometimes it’s not possible to meet in person. The good news is that our team has been providing virtual peer support from the very beginning! Our team of state-certified direct service staff (youth peer support specialists and Wraparound youth partners) can provide one-on-ones via phone/text, through video chat, and over their various Youth Era-issued social media accounts including Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook.

About YouthERA

Excerpts last viewed online 2020 Jun 15 from:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

Telephone Peer Support – Trans Lifeline Saving Lives – 877-565-8860 – Weekdays and Weekends @ United States and Canada
Jul 21 all-day

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Hotline open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week* – Weekdays & Weekends

* reportedly it is only guaranteed to be staffed 7am-1pm PST / 10am-4pm EST but may have operators or take messages outside these times

Toll-Free USA:  877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada:  877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether or not you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just need someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.

Trans Lifeline is training Spanish speaking volunteers who identify as transgender and want to support the Translatinx community by being a volunteer operator for our dedicated Spanish hotline. This line will launch this summer.

4) One on One Virtual Peer Support

One of the most important ways our team of dedicated peer support specialists connects with youth is through one-on-one meetings, but sometimes it’s not possible to meet in person. The good news is that our team has been providing virtual peer support from the very beginning! Our team of state-certified direct service staff (youth peer support specialists and Wraparound youth partners) can provide one-on-ones via phone/text, through video chat, and over their various Youth Era-issued social media accounts including Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook. If you, or someone you know, is in need of one-on-one support, please click the link below to find the Program Manager in your region.

About YouthERA

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.
