ALSO Youth's mission is to provide Advocacy, Leadership, Support, and Outreach to LGBTQIA youth and their allies. Their vision is that all persons live their lives with dignity, honesty, and pride, regardless of their real or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity.
The ALSO Drop-In Center is a safe and drug-free space where youth, ages 13 to 21, are welcome to express themselves and find support, free of ostracization and bullying. Guest speakers, field trips, and other special programming are scheduled each month, in addition to regular weekly programs.
House of the Broken Dragon was invited to be a guest speaker this past week. In addition to a brief introduction of our entrepreneurial business venture, HOTBD offered two interactive activities: pillow construction and origami crane folding. Both were a hit!
HOTBD is happy to be part of this local community service for our youth. We, too, believe all people are deserving of respect regardless of their sexual orientation. Learn more about this important, non-profit organization, here: ALSO Youth
