HMI celebrates its staff and all they do to ensure youth have the resources and mentorship they need to prosper. Today we recognize our rockstar IT leader, Maria Diplan, who was invited to speak at her alma mater, Per Scholas, a non-profit technical school where she received IT training and certifications. She spoke with students, sharing her experience at the school, her career to date, and guidance to new students entering the IT industry. Another great example of paying it forward. #youthmatter #hmi40

Being visible means being vulnerable and everyone deserves to be safe and respected. Trans and non-binary youth, especially, need our understanding, love and support.

Thank you Ryan Murphy and The Prom!! Go see it! Our LGBTQ youth, who many of you sponsored to attend last December, loved it! #youthmatter #hmi40 #Repost @mrrpmurphy with @get_repost ・・・ I saw the hilarious and moving new Broadway musical comedy @theprommusical and was so inspired by the story of an incredibly courageous girl facing injustice in a small town and the larger-than-life Broadway celebrities who take up her cause that I want to share the love with my friends and some very special LGBTQ youth who have been affected by similar injustices. On Tuesday, April 9, I will host a special performance of THE PROM to benefit @hetrickmartin, @GLAAD and @trevorproject at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre. Hope to see you there.

#Repost @allycoalition ‪#youthmatter‬ ‪#hmi40‬ ・・・ Time for another Friday partner spotlight! The @hetrickmartin is a safe haven for LGBTQ+ youth in NYC. This institute was previously known as the Institute for the Protection of Lesbian and Gay Youth, and although its name was changed to honor its founders, the commitment behind it to provide and protect the New York City youth that may have nowhere else to turn still stands to this day. HMI has Center for LGBTQ Youth Advocacy and Capacity Building to advocate on behalf of LGBTQ youth by promoting a narrative and governmental policy of progressive values that will serve marginalized populations. HMI also is home to Harvey Milk High School, the first of its kind in the area with the sole purpose of helping at-risk youth. In NYC and looking for ways to give back? Volunteer with HMI or email to see how you can support.

We have grave concern about the message this new policy sends to our youth who are most impressionable at a young age; not to mention, HMI serves youth who are eligible and have enrolled in the military.
