A SAFE SPACE WHERE IT'S OK2BU!
The Attic Youth Center’s mission is to create opportunities for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth to develop into healthy, independent, civic-minded adults within a safe and supportive community and to promote the acceptance of LGBTQ youth in society.
Many LGBTQ youth continue to experience prejudice and oppression in their daily lives, which often leaves youth feeling isolated and vulnerable. The Attic community helps provide youth with a sense of belonging, connection, and understanding.
The Attic offers a wide range of programs and services designed to provide youth with the support and skills needed to transition into independent, thriving adults. The Attic strives to have a positive impact on all aspects of youth’s lives; to facilitate growth, empowerment, and resiliency; and to help youth find their voice, which is often silenced.
Please consider supporting Philadelphia’s only LGBTQIA+ Youth Center. Our youth are facing monumental oppressors, from anti-trans legislation to high levels of housing insecurity. The Attic provides a safe space for our youth to be themselves, where they can build community and it’s #OK2BU. Help us build a safer, more inclusive community for LGBTQIA+ youth by donating today.
The Attic’s Bryson Institute delivers customized workshops and trainings on best practices for working with LGBTQ youth in schools, in workplaces, and within organizations.
