Our Youth

Our Youth

Our young people are growing up in a world of increasing acceptance of LGBTQ people. At the same time recognize that their families are “different” from most of their peers’. Our vibrant new  youth program provides support and leadership-building opportunities for  youth living in LGBTQ-headed families. Our activities for 4th through 7th graders cultivate an environment for community and fun while creating a safe space­­­ for our you to build community and confidence to speak out about their families.
