Weekly support groups for LGBTQ+ youth offer opportunities for participants to build community, discuss challenges, and feel supported by others. Facilitated by program staff, these groups include a check-in, fun activities designed to help foster relationships, and time to share challenges and receive support. To join, participants complete an intake membership meeting with a staff member, becoming a member of our Pride Community.
We are so excited to be returning to the office for some in-person Pride programming this summer! In-person programming will take place at Youth Services, 3080 West Lake Avenue in Glenview. In-person groups will be limited to groups of 8-10 youth with 2-3 adult facilitators. Masks will be required, as well as social distancing. We will not be providing meals at in-person groups for the time being. Additionally, youth will be required to complete a symptom questionnaire prior to group each week. Summer group will meet for 6 weeks beginning 6/14 (or 6/21 for Primary Colors).
