Queer Youth Project 

Nationwide, 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. 

This program offers:

  • Free queer-affirmative counseling for youth and families.

  • Positive and healthy pro-social activities for LGBTQ youth and allies, 3rd Friday of each month, 4-6 p.m. at Bellingham First Congregational Church. 

  • The Trans Fashion Treasury provides make-up, accessories, binders, other important items for transgender and non-binary youth. 

  • School based supports including trainings and consultations for adults, group and individual youth support. 

  • Free Queer-Informed Care trainings for community members. 

Interested in bringing a training to your organization, business,
school, club, or faith community?
