LGBT Education Library - The educational library is a collection of white papers designed to help raise awareness for outstanding issues that the LGBT community manages either as a community or by individuals. Each contribution should help the community see the other side of experiences that they may not understand or have been exposed to.

Homeless Shelter Support - In some cases we are able to dedicate special funding towards social programs that help LGBT+ youth find housing and return to school. This support has conditions for each youth requesting support and must be supported in their local city.


Volunteering – The Proud Scholars Volunteer program is designed to help individuals with student loans to connect with our community support partners, log volunteer hours and Proud Scholars will send a payment to your Navient student loan account. This program is designed to balance our financial strategy to help student as they go into collage and when they finish their degree program.

Inclusive School Network - The inclusive school network connects parents and students with schools that understand the value of diversity and that support students with opportunities to be recognized for who they are and help them succeed.

All of our services cross stateliness and communities. As we build our program we will replicate our services for each community that we enter. With the help of valued chapter teams we will strengthen the community by supporting education and diversity.
