Youth First


Feeling unsafe at school and unwelcome at home leaves some LGBT youth with nowhere to go. Recognizing the need for LGBT youth to have a safe haven, Youth First Texas was established in 1999. Today it remains the only local LGBT-focused youth program that addresses the challenges LGBT youth face with family members, peers and fellow students. In June 2013, Resource Center assumed the organization’s operations and is developing plans for expanding the scope of programs and services.

Serving youth and young adults ages 14-22, Youth First equips youth with the skills needed to lead an open life. Family ties are strengthened, peer support networks are built and mental health is supported through activities that build confidence and address the specific issues that LGBT teens face during their critical, formative years.

Youth First is open Tuesday through Saturday, generally from 4-9 p.m. with programming usually beginning at 7 p.m. Refer to the calendar below for specific event information. You are also welcome to call or send and email for more details. If there is programming you wouldl like to see, but is not offered, let us know. We would be happy to explore expansion of our current offerings.
