Everyone needs a Lee

An app-based mentoring program for queer youth and young adults

Our Idea

LEE is an app-based mentoring program focused on the needs of queer youth and young adults. 

The "Everyone needs a Lee" app - LEE-App for short – is designed to bring together queer teenagers and more experienced adults from the community or allies to accompany them on their journey. The mentors can help the young people with words and deeds and provide assistance with their biographical experience if the mentees need help in certain areas of life.

With the gender-neutral first name LEE we want to create awareness for sexual and gender diversity.

Experts

In order to make the LEE app participative, we greatly value different opinions and perspectives. From the beginning, we have aimed to include expert opinions and feedback on LGBTIQ* related topics in the development of our app. LEE values transparency, openness, and opportunities to actively shape the mentoring program. We welcome opinions and feedback in the form of interviews, suggestions, or general comments.
