Kaleidoscope Youth Center is open to middle school and high school aged youth as well as young adults through age 20, who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), are questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity, identify as queer, or are straight allies.
Essentially, Kaleidoscope Youth Center IS you.
Youth have the most important voice in all that we do at Kaleidoscope. Center programs and services are designed to assist young people in developing a true sense of self, to identify their own unique qualities and to discover their similarities with others. Our safe, supportive, confidential environment allows you to build your understanding of the LGBT community, to explore your feelings and experiences and to meet other young people.
At Kaleidoscope you will find that you are not alone—in fact, you are one of the family!
Figuring out who you are and what direction you want to go in life is hard. At Kaleidoscope, we are dedicated to working with you to figure out what programs you want as a Center youth and we count on you to tell us what you need. We understand that you may have questions and venturing out is not always easy. We have many online resources and an email link where you can ask us anything that might help with this. Whether you are unsure of your sexual orientation or gender identity or are out, proud and ready to create change, we are happy that you are here!
Welcome! We’re glad you found us!
