Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

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.
