Queer Youth Project

QYP logo officialNationwide, around 40% of homeless youth identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer/questioning (LGBTQ) – compared to 7-10% of the general youth population. 

The Queer Youth Project (QYP) is a Northwest Youth Services program dedicated to supporting and advocating for at-risk and homeless LGBTQ youth. It was founded in 2014. This program offers:

  • Family reunification counseling for youth interested in addressing family conflicts.
  • Safe referrals to culturally competent service providers. Providers are screened by NWYS staff to ensure their ability to safely and respectfully serve LGBTQ youth.
  • Monthly social activities for LGBTQ youth and allies.
  • LGBTQ Youth Safety & Resiliency trainings for community members.
    • Interested in bringing a training to your organization, business, school, club, or faith community? Email us!
