Youth programs at Pacific Center support young people in feeling connected, supported, and uplifted. We offer a welcoming, affirming space to explore identity -- especially sexuality and gender -- and mental health. We believe in promoting empowerment, mental well-being and safety for all LGBTQIA+ and QTBIPOC youth.

Having access to a supportive space is something we all deserve -- especially when we are exploring our various identities and experiences. Our programs provide young people an opportunity to build relationships with other queer youth, while also centering their mental and emotional well-being.
