Weekly Drop-In

Youth Drop In

Youth Drop-In is a weekly opportunity for Jr. High and High school age LGBTQ identifying youth to engage with peers in an affirming space. Each week youth will participate in crafts, games, activities, and/or discussions relevant to the experiences of LGBTQ youth. Light snacks and drinks are provided each week with an occasional pizza night announced in advance. For additional information and session descriptions please check the events calendar or

Parents Please Note: Sessions are lead by an Adult and Youth Facilitator. We asked that parents drop their youth off at the center and return to pick them up at the end of Drop-In.  Youth Drop-In is meant to be a safe space for youth to engage with their peers freely. If you are interested in youth/parent programs please email our adult facilitator Lora for more information.
