Youth Meetings

Youth meetings (ages 14-23) cover a wide range of topics, from safe sex and healthy relationships, to LGBTQ issues, to open mic and game nights, and everything in between. Attendees are encouraged, though not required, to participate in the conversation, while learning various tools for maintaining happy, confident, and healthy lives.  Programming is led by our Peer Leaders and Adult Advisors.

Transgender and non-binary youth have specific questions and concerns over and above those we might address in our regular youth meetings, and Transcendence is there for them. Led by transgender and non-binary adult advisors and peer leaders, this group allows those questions and concerns to be answered in a supportive, understanding environment.

The Educators and Parents in Communication Group's ("EPiC") mission to assist parents, educators, and caregivers in becoming the best advocates and allies for their children/young people who identify within the LGBTQ+ community.  Meetings are focused on providing valuable information regarding risk reduction, gender identity, LGBTQ+ culture, resources, and a host of other topics.  All meetings are facilitated by adult advisors and are a safe space for caregivers to seek resources, information, peer-to-peer support, and a better understanding of the issues that affect our LGBTQ+ youth.  Meetings are free from judgment and respectful of attendees' input and concerns. We welcome you to join us, as it is affirming to know that others are undertaking similar journeys with their children.

Building Relationships Better (BRB)

Building Relationships Better is a partnership between the YWCA North Shore Rape Crisis Center and NAGLY, the North Shore Alliance of GLBTQ Youth. Our aim is to work within the local community of LGBTQ+ youth and youth serving agencies to create empowerment, autonomy, and interpersonal skills in the hopes of reducing sexual violence within this at risk population. We do this through education and outreach, with a focus on giving the youth in our community a voice so that we all may learn from each other in this endeavor. There are many types of relationships that need navigating in this world and it is our goal to provide youth with the building blocks necessary to do so with confidence and respect.
