The Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI) is the oldest and largest nonprofit in the US serving LGBTQ+ youth. Founded in 1979 by Dr. Emery Hetrick and Damien Martin, HMI provides needed resources for young people ages 13-24 living in the New York Metropolitan area. Their programs and services include hot meal and emergency services, mental and medical health support, expressive arts programming, tutoring and test prep, and job training and internships.
HMI serves more than 2,000 youth each year, and partners with more than 50 community based organizations, government agencies, and corporations to build awareness and provide support. In 2019, HMI celebrated its 40th anniversary.
All volunteer opportunities give both volunteers and youth a unique opportunity to engage with and learn from each other. These experiences are rewarding for all while providing opportunities to inspire and broaden the horizons of HMI’s LGBTQ youth community.
