True Colors Fellowship

Community Work/Internship

During the True Colors Fellowship, five young people ages 18 – 24 do a six-month project that contributes to a world that affirms and includes the identities of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, queer, and questioning young people. Throughout the experience, True Colors Fellows make lasting professional connections, gain hands-on organizing experience, and build their leadership skills.


  • Cost: Free to apply, and fellows get a small payment.
  • Who: LGBTQ-identified youth ages 18-24 with lived experiences of housing instability and/or homelessness.
  • When: Fellows must attend a training at the start and regular meetings throughout the six-month fellowships; they must also commit to working on their project for 10 hours per week.
  • Location: Most of the work is remote, in the fellow’s community or home.
