Project 13 is a program specifically for LGBTQ, queer, or questioning middle school youth ages 11-14 in the South Puget Sound. Through weekly program hours at Oasis Youth Center, youth involved with this program will have a safe space to gather, learn, and connect with peers once a week during summer afternoons, and throughout the coming school year.
Through focused activities and discussion facilitated by culturally competent staff and volunteers, Project 13 will provide a safe space for queer and questioning youth to build positive self-identity, community support, and critical thinking skills to practice consent, recognize healthy relationships, and have a vision for their healthy futures.
Project 13 runs on an 8-week program cycle, in which youth will have the space and guidance to learn, explore, and discuss topics like self-identity, peer pressure, healthy relationships, and leadership.
*Queer: We use the term queer as a positive social identity, and an inclusive, or umbrella term, for LGBTQ people.
