Youth Programs

The Youth Initiative works to support, engage and empower LGBTQ+ youth in North Carolina.

The youth leadership team is made up of a partnership of youth leaders and adult volunteers who work to support the youth's organizing efforts. This allows the programs to be youth led while providing the support and encouragement for the programs to reach more youth in our growing service area. At this time we have a local presence for our on going events, but a statewide reach with our online and annual leadership camp. 


Our Newest Program: TpartE



APPLY FOR THE 2016-2017 LEADERSHIP TEAM HERE: The application deadline is April 16, 2016.

Our Youth programs are coordinated by our Youth Leadership Team that is made up of youth in the Triangle Region that make all programming decisions and coordinate the programs in partnership with our adult volunteers. 

We are now recruiting adult volunteers to assist the programs as team advisors and event volunteers. For more information contact our Youth Programs Manager and Youth chair by clicking here
