LGBTQ+ Center

The purpose for our LGBTQ+ Center is a way for teens and young adults to express themselves freely. Some LGBTQ+ individuals who attend are not out or able to express themselves in every area of their lives so the center gives them a safe place to be themselves.

 

The idea is for teens and young adults to come and enjoy activities such as creative arts, movie or board game nights, yoga/meditation, community service activities, learning about inclusive positive healthy behaviors, and opportunities to collaborate on leadership activities. These activities were designed with the feedback provided by the LGBTQ+ therapeutic group that was conducted at the Kenneth Young Center. My background is also in Social Work and I am a licensed social worker however our programming is not clinically based.

 

We will start with a Check In/Welcome New Members. We’ll Segway into having announcements & 15 minute presentations on inclusive positive healthy behaviors or LGBTQ community presentations. But not everything can be so intense so we definitely want times where days are youth led. We’ll end with Check Out/Leave with Buddy.
