Weekly support groups for LGBTQ+ youth offer opportunities for participants to build community, discuss challenges, and feel supported by others. Facilitated by program staff, these groups include a check-in, fun activities designed to help foster relationships, and time to share challenges and receive support. To join, participants complete an intake membership meeting with a staff member, becoming a member of our Pride Community.
