Youth Programs and Services
Over the last decade, the LGBTQ Center OC’s Youth Program has served as a comprehensive model program built upon unconditional acceptance of sexual orientation, gender expression and identity, and cultural diversity. We provide a variety of services and programs to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and young adults through social support, education, mental health, and youth leadership and empowerment. We extend our services and support to Orange County schools and school districts, where we have partnered with over 50 Gender and Sexualities Alliances or Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) student clubs. We support student leaders, teachers, and the school administration to create safe, equitable and restorative schools for LGBTQ students.
