I sent a brief email to the LGBTQ group facilitator. I thought it was concise and easy to understand:
This was the response I received:
Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I am sorry that Jeremy feels that way. [LGBTQ group] is meant to be a safe environment for LGBTQ youth to come and engage in pro-social activities. As a facilitator I aim to ensure the safety and security of the youth, as well as, provide plans and activities for them to engage in. Some of the upcoming planned events for group I hope that it will provide more group engagement.
If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to let me know.
I don’t know why she offered to answer additional questions when she never even answered my original one. Lenny’s comment was that the email’s a generic message and I feel the same way. It’s like the facilitator stuck a sentence into a form letter then emailed me back. I honestly have no idea how to respond and she gave me nothing tangible to encourage Jeremy with. She mentions upcoming planned events but nothing’s listed so I can’t even try to tempt him with something cool.
