Youth Programs and Services
Ensuring that LGBTQ youth have a safe space to live and learn is a priority of the LGBT Center OC. We offer comprehensive services and resources promoting the healing, well-being, and empowerment of LGBTQ youth. Our youth engage in activities that strengthen their sense of identity and their involvement in their communities that help them realize their role in social justice and activism. Through our programs, our youth have advocated for anti-bullying and transgender equality legislation in schools and garnered national attention with their organized protests. In addition, we have created and strengthened relationships with over 30 Gay Straight Alliance club advisors, student leaders, and members to create safe and affirming schools for LGBTQ students.
