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.
We are offering these virtual groups this spring to youth in grades 3-12. prideSUPPORT groups offer a space for young people to get to know a consistent group of peers through interactive activities with age-appropriate opportunities to discuss identities. If you are interested in more information or joining our Spring session (which begins 4/5/21), please email Lizzy.Appleby@ysgn.org. You can also find the most up-to-date information about current events, groups, and opportunities for LGBTQ+ youth and families online here.
