For Youth

Youth Outlook offers safe, supportive, and affirming services for LGBTQ+ youth, their families, and the community.  Please see below for our list of Drop-In Centers, including locations and suggested ages.

Our Drop-In Centers meet weekly and are a social setting for youth to meet other LGBTQ+ young people and talk about a variety of topics that really matter to them.  Whatever the topic, Youth Outlook’s Drop-In centers provide a place for LGBTQ+ youth to feel safe, supported, and celebrated. All groups welcome youth ages 12-20.
