Youth Programs and Services
The LGBT Center OC’s Youth Program offers comprehensive services and resources that promote the healing, well-being, and empowerment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. We organize in-group activities and community events that strengthen youth and their sense of well-being and identity, as well as their involvement in their schools and communities. In addition, we have established ongoing relationships with 45 Gay-Straight Alliance clubs and their advisors, student leaders, and members to create safe and supportive schools for LGBTQ students. We continue to increase our support for more Gay-Straight Alliances each year and provide resources for youth, students, families, teachers, administrators across Orange County.
