From Ashley Mitchell, Youth Programs Coordinator at ROSMY:
ROSMY is the Richmond Organization for Sexual Minority Youth serving ages 14-20. We hold weekly support groups, a 24/7 youth support line, events for both youth and volunteer participants, and an institute for equality training program which has gained some great success and feedback.
Our training is coming up, and is now scheduled for two locations because ROSMY holds support groups in Charlottesville as well:
Richmond – at ROSMY (2311 Westwood Avenue, Richmond, Va)
Friday, July 24th – 6:00PM – 9:00PM
Saturday, July 25th 9:00AM – 5:00PM
Charlottesville – location TBD
Friday, August 7th – 6:00PM – 9:00PM
Saturday, August 8th – 9:00AM – 5:00PM
To become involved, you MUST RSVP. Training includes food and beverages. It is required to have a background check done and some follow-up interviews for certain volunteer positions. I hope to hear from you soon, and if you cannot participate this time but would like to next time, please let me know, so I can keep you on my list for the next volunteer training opportunity.
