Our LGBTQ+ Youth Center
The LGBTQ Center of Durham was given funds through the City of Durham's Participatory Budgeting process. The LGBTQ Center of Durham proposal was for the creation of an LGBTQ+ Youth Center to allow the current center to expand its mission to intentionally focus on the City of Durham’s LGBTQ+ youth population. This center functions as the singular physical hub of LGBTQ+ youth resources within the City and the Triangle. We value and honor youth leadership and wisdom. Our programming features educational, arts-based and community events designed to support youth in the development of positive self-concept, resiliency, building social and vocational skills, and leadership skills.
The LGBTQ+ Youth Center has been providing programming for 2 years. The Youth Center will has space for programming, access to meeting rooms, two full-time staff members, and access to all the resources of the LGBTQ Center of Durham.
