Thank You to Boston Scientific!

Over the last several weeks the Pride ERGs at Boston Scientific (in Maple Grove and Arden Hills) have gone above and beyond in partnership with LGTBQI+ youth experiencing homelessness and provided direct supports to the ConneQT program. 

The Pride ERGs hosted a joint “Lunch and Learn” zoom call with 68 participants to learn about the disproportionate rates of homelessness amongst LGBTQI+ youth (as high as 40%). They also hosted two in-kind drives, collecting over 20 books for a special LGBTQI+ youth library (on topics like coming out and affirming trans identity) and collecting 16 binder wraps for trans youth. 

An additional financial donation drive grossed over $2,500 to further support these efforts.  Special thanks to Scott and Katherine for leading this incredible engagement. Avenues for Youth is so proud to have Boston Scientific as a community partner.
