What We Believe


 

Mission


The Four Corners Rainbow Youth Center’s mission is to offer a safe, non-judgmental, and visible space for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth, families and allies in our community. Our goal is to demystify stereotypes and empower through education. We envision that the LGBTQ youth and allies will direct and develop peer-led educational and recreational activities to youth ages 13-18. Our role is to help guide and provide resources to meet the needs of youth and allies in our community.
