Youth Meetings

Youth meetings (for 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.  This group is for youth aged 14-23.

Little Rainbows

Little Rainbows is a group designed for youth between kindergarten and Elementary school age to work within the space on social skills, communication, proper play skills, all in a safe and affirming space.

Parents/guardians must accompany youth to this group.

This group will be split into two hours.   The first hour will be spent with the family and the group facilitator in a large group.  This time will be spent providing resources, experiencing the space together, and expressing gender identity and self-expression.  The second hour will be spent with the facilitator and the children working in a group setting.  Proper play skills, communication, and social skills will ensue.  The idea of this group will be an entry into affirming one's identity and developing the social skills needed for the transition into middle school.

Every other Wednesday

Educators & Parents in Communication

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.
