Nonprofit LGBTQ advocacy group Time Out Youth will offer a new support and discussion group for youth ages 11-14. Topics will range from fostering healthy relationships, self-esteem and coping skills.
The group will meet on the third Saturday of each month from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at the Time Out Youth office. Referrals can be made in advance, but are not required, by calling 704-344-8335 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
"We are excited to offer programming for younger youth in the community," said Executive Director Rodney Tucker in a statement. "We have received a high number of calls from parents who wanted to ensure their children will have friends, be safe and happy."
