Get Involved

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.

Programs

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.

Advocacy

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.

Give!

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.

Be an annual sponsor!

The work we do year-round at Inside Out Youth Services wouldn’t be possible
without the generous support from our sponsors.
