Youth Empowered to Act – Elevate

The Elevate Program creates opportunities for LGBTQ youth to increase their advocacy and leadership skills. Through a trauma-informed, health-centered and asset-based approach, youth leaders will work to effect transformative and peer-led policy, systems and environmental change in Orange County. Youth leaders work to identify healthy alternatives to suspension/expulsion related to substance use. Ultimately, LGBTQ Center OC is committed to ending the school-to-prison pipeline and transforming the pipeline to restorative justice, healing and rehabilitation through their Elevate Program.

LGBTQ Professional Mixer

The Seahorse Lounge 1796 S Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach

  Orange County Professionals & Businesses that are part of the LGBTQ community and allies are welcome to join us for this new Professional Series. Each meeting will have a theme of what the evenings focus will be on with a guest speaker and/or panel. November 17th is our Second Professional Mixer in the series, with the topic "What Makes Me" and will explore mentorships, experiences, etc... that has allowed people to be successful, supported, and empowered in the workplace. This is primarily a mixer, so discussions will be limited to 20 minutes generally starting a half hour after the event starts along with a soft icebreaker. This is a FREE event at an LGBTQ supporting business, so we do ask you support them by purchasing a drink and/or other product. November 17th LGBTQ Professional Mixer is in partnership with Laguna Beach PRIDE & the LGBTQ Center Orange County
