David Kilmnick said the new program will provide tutoring, training in life skills and with handling financial matters, internships, and summer jobs assistance for high school students. He said it is launching immediately.
David noted that an increase in bullying against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals has been documented by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Alabama-based organization that identifies hate groups and tracks bias crimes.
“It’s to make sure that no matter what our students are facing in school, there is a pathway to pride,” Kilmnick said at a news conference. “There is a pathway to the future. There is a pathway that you will be able to do whatever you want to do.”
