Are you interested in finding ways to support your peers and the community? Do you have an idea for a project? This is the group for you!
The Queer Youth for Change Program offers an opportunity for LGBTQ+ youth and ally middle and high schoolers to build skills in leadership, advocacy, and community organizing, all while getting to connect with each other. Here you will learn what it takes to plan and implement ideas, and all the necessary steps in between.
Those who participate in the 12-week program will earn a certificate to include on resumes, college applications, and more! Feel free to join anytime as there will be multiple projects throughout the year. The youth in this program decide what project they would like to develop, so whether it be an event or a drive, it is up to you!
This program is open to Middle School and High School students. For questions and to RSVP email programs@lgbtqcenter.org
