Trans-cendent Connections is a non-profit that pairs transgender and gender non-conforming college students with transgender and gender non-conforming middle school and high school students as a way of supporting younger trans individuals. These sibling-ships are focused on helping trans students self-advocate, find nearby resources, and navigate high school and the transition to college/the professional world.

Mentors are provided with a basic LGBT+ training developed from a combination of national LGBT organizations (GLAAD, the Trevor Project, and GLSEN) as well as access to a network of other mentors to work through issues and struggles faced by those living as members of the LGBT+ community.

Each Trans-cendent Connections chapter is self-contained and specific to a particular community to allow for these connections and organizations to best change and adapt to fit the needs to the area. For instance, the mentor/mentee relationships and structures that work for a small town like Collegeville, PA might not translate to Philadelphia. In order to provide structure as well as flexibility Trans-cendent Connections provides basic starting framework guidelines for mentors, mentees, and the chapter as a whole to ensure the well-being of all parties.

This group gets a new LGBT themed pin every year. Pin will not be the same as the one pictured (or it could be if you ask for one!)-- Pins are custom-made so put something about yourself in the address box so we can give you ones that suite you :)
