Organizer

Indiana Youth Group

Indiana Youth Group has been serving LGBTQ youth for 30 years and is one of the largest LGBTQ youth centers of its kind across the country.  It is unique in that it is a stand-alone organization serving LGBTQ youth and the community rather than being a division or arm of a larger umbrella organization. Therefore, we are able to act as a one-stop-shop for our youth, parents and community who are empowered through wellness programs, social and leadership opportunities, family support services and educational programs that include homework sessions, tutoring, study groups, career and college prep.  We also work closely with mental health organizations throughout the state and over 80 LGBTQ youth groups inside Indiana schools and communities.
