Transformational Leadership Initiative


Part 1: Social Impact Grants

Part 2: LGBTQ+ Mentorship

Part 3: EMERGE+ Leadership Training

For our first year of this program, ten, emerging LGBTQ+ leaders will be selected to participate in The Pride Network's Transformational Leadership Initiative–– a year-long, three-part leadership initiative that aims to cultivate heart-centered leadership and provide participants with the resources and opportunities they need to create change within themselves and in our communities.





Mentors will be assigned by March 20th, 2021

Grant/Mentor program will begin on April 1st, 2021 



Connecting LGBTQ+ professionals with emerging young leaders for guidance and professional growth.


In addition to receiving a Social Innovation & Impact Grant & The Pride Network's EMERGE+ leadership training, students selected for the Transformational Leadership Initiative funds will also be awarded a professional mentor.

Mentors will be proven, effective LGBTQ+ & straight/ally professionals who can offer meaningful encouragement, guidance, and professional skills development as their mentee designs and executes their one-year-long social impact project and prepares for their future post-college.

Over the course of the year, The Pride Network’s staff will work to help mentors connect more deeply with their mentees to build rewarding, personal relationships. While mentors will inevitably serve as role models for the grant recipients, each mentor will also find that their mentees are sources of great inspiration and gratitude. from working with such talented, passionate individuals.

Mentors will enrich their own lives, the lives of their mentees, all while contributing to the building of The Pride Network’s intergenerational support network of mentors, students, and alumni.
