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:
School-based youth supports, individual and in groups
Consulting and professional development for providers across professional disciplines
Trans Fashion Treasury: items to support youth who are transitioning or exploring their gender identity to include chest binders, make up, name change fees and more
Support and referrals for parents and guardians caring for an LGBTQ+ young person
Free counseling for LGBTQ+ young people with Queer informed providers
Referrals to community providers and resources which are equipped to support LGBTQ+ youth and their families
Monthly Queer Youth Gatherings, a supportive space for LGBTQ+ and allied teens on the 3rd Friday of each month.
