Some questions have surfaced in recent months about our work since the Club Q shooting in November. So we have put together an FAQ with information about our work since then, safety measures, and how we will continue building access, equity, and power with LGBTQIA2+ young people, ages 13 – 24.
If you have a question that wasn’t answered in the FAQ, please contact us directly.
The Club Q tragedy in November has left our community in mourning, and more concerned than ever about safety and security. As we work to revise and bolster our processes and procedures around security, the IOYS physical space is closed. Our virtual community center is still open to anyone ages 13-24 in the region, and we are still hosting weekly off-site meetups, completing weekly grocery deliveries, and offering free therapy. Please contact us to enroll in IOYS to take part in these services. We will update this space when a reopening date has been set.
Inside Out Youth Services’ outreach and education staff have been hard at work revising our trainings to better serve our community. If you want to learn more about LGBTQIA2+ identities, how to become a trusted adult, or get answers to other questions related to our community, these trainings may be just what you need.
IOYS builds access, equity, and power with LGBTQIA2+ young people, through leadership, advocacy, community-building, education, and peer support.
Wholeness. Inside and Out.
Do you want to make a difference in the lives of LGBTQIA2+ youth? In addition to accepting donations, Inside Out offers multiple advocacy and volunteer opportunities.
Our programs support youth through discussion groups, drop-ins (online and in-person), outings, leadership opportunities, counseling, and food and clothing support. Our goal is to ensure that each of the lives we touch goes on to live a healthy and long existence as their authentic happy self.
Our adult workshops train parents and youth-serving adults how to advocate and support their youth through allyship and community resiliency. We also work with community partners, schools, and organizations to advocate for youth and teach them how to be inclusive, change-making leaders.
Every dollar you spend with us is put directly toward aiding and assisting the LGBTQIA2+ youth of the Pikes Peak region. Your thoughtful donation makes a big difference for the youth attending Inside Out.
The work we do year-round at Inside Out Youth Services wouldn’t be possible
without the generous support from our sponsors.
