VACCINE CLINIC NOV. 19 CANCELED

The COVID-19 vaccine clinic previously scheduled for Nov. 19 has been canceled by the state. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you at our next vaccine clinic on Dec. 17. Details below!

The Give! Campaign is live!

Between Nov. 1 and Dec. 31, Inside Out is taking part in one of our favorite yearly initiatives: The Give Campaign! We’ve joined more than 80 local nonprofits again this year to raise money for causes that matter!

Get your COVID-19 vaccine!

We have multiple vaccine clinics coming up, offering COVID-19 vaccines to anyone ages 5 and older! No ID, insurance or registration required (though registration is appreciated!) 

Hybrid Programs

The space is open Monday-Friday for in-person programs! Drop-in hours are 3-5:30 every weekday except Wednesday, and programs are 5:30-7 p.m. every weekday. Most programs have a hybrid option to ensure wide access.

Our mission

Inside Out empowers, educates, and advocates for LGBTQIA2+ youth from the Pikes Peak Region in Southern Colorado. Inside Out does this by creating safe space, support systems and teaching life skills to all youth in our community, and working to make our community safer and more accepting of gender and sexual orientation diversity.

Inside Out Youth Services (est. 1990) is the only nonprofit organization in El Paso County that serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, asexual, two-spirit and questioning youth. We provide a safe accepting space for young adults between ages 13-24. All of our groups and services are provided free of charge with the hope that any aid we provide will further the happiness and health of LGBTQIA2+ young people in the Colorado Springs area.

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.
