Helping through donating and/or funding the various programs of the PAIGE will assist in developing a standard of wellness, education, and empowerment for Black LGBTQ youth/young adults. According to the 2019 Memphis Poverty Fact sheet, Blacks are the most impoverished of other races. To add, this same population represents the majority of the lack of healthcare access including sexual health services.
The PAIGE provides volunteering opportunities for high school/college students, counseling, advocacy, and nonprofit professionals. With our volunteer opportunities, you have the chance to directly impact your community and be the celebrated change agent that you thought you could always be.
