Youth-to-Youth Peer Support For BIPOC & 2SLGBTQ+ Youth

Request for Proposals

We envision a world in which all youth have a peer they can turn to and all youth peer supporters receive the training and credentials now that position them to easily enter careers or post-secondary learning in the behavioral health field in the future.

2023 Request for Grant Proposals

Proposal Deadline: September 1, 2023, 5:00 PM MT

Gary is seeking to identify a cohort of approximately 4-5 youth-to-youth peer support programs, organizations, or agencies serving Denver, Jefferson, Adams, and/or Arapahoe counties, with a particular focus on those that support BIPOC and/or 2SLGBTQ+ youth. Applicant organizations will be interested in learning from and collaborating with other peer support organizations as well as expanding their programming. 

Programs, organizations, or agencies of any size that effectively serve 2SLGBTQ+ and/or BIPOC youth and operate either in the community or in schools who want to grow and enhance their ability to serve these youth populations should apply. Organizations should also be interested in exploring, updating, and/or implementing meaningful credentials for youth peer supporters that will lead to careers in behavioral health or other in-demand careers.
