about 'a simple matter of equality'



In June of 1995, Your Family, Friends, and Neighbors started a youth group for young people aged 20 and under. The group was created to provide a positive support and social network for those young people who have discovered or are struggling with the realization that their sexual orientation and/or identity may not be as most others.

   The group meets each week on  Sunday from 4-6 pm at the Community Center919 N 27th St in Boise Idaho.

During the past year the group has participated in a variety of activities including; bowling, video games, movies, coffee, hiking trips, pumpkin carving, volunteer efforts, and conversation and group discussion about "coming out". Ideas for activities are encouraged to come from the young people and occasionally from the youth group advisors.

   Our wish is to provide young people with an opportunity to meet and receive the support of other young people who are bisexual, lesbian, gay, or transgender. The group is open to for non-gay youth who are supportive of their friends who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. The youth group provides the opportunity to interact with positive adult role models in a safe and non-threatening environment.

We aspire to have two adults (one male, and one female) present for all activities.

Adult sponsors are interviewed and background checks/fingerprinting are done on them before they are allowed to work with the group.

We utilize the assistance of licensed counselors.
