youth alliance for diversity
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 once a week on Sunday from 4-6pm. 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.
