The LGBTQ+ Youth Program’s purpose is to not only begin the conversation of integrating and including Transgender and/or people in the Queer community within domestic violence and sexual assault prevention work, but also bring the cultural aspect of bringing transgender or/and queer experience into Hmong conversations of gender roles etc.

This program focuses on the self and society; breaking down social constructs such as gender, race, class, etc. and finding ways to navigate the world as a transgender and/or non-binary gender fluid youth through workshops and interactive activities. In addition, we also practice self-care and-- to the best of our ability--create a “safe” space that is inclusive of all identities through the maintenance and building of professional and interpersonal relationships.

Goals of Youth Program:

  • Provide a safe space and a support network for LGBTQ+ HMoob youth;

  • Connect them culturally, socially, emotionally, and politically through safe, confidential open dialogue;

  • Individual/group mentorship;

  • Leadership building;

  • Exploring what it means to be queer AND HMoob

When: Every Wednesdays 4pm to 6pm (virtually on Zoom)
