This year's conference is on Saturday, December 13, 2014 at Mission High School in San Francisco. The Youth Empowerment Summit (YES!) is a free annual conference for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) and ally youth activists who are dedicated to racial, economic, and educational justice for trans and queer youth.

If you are tired of watching heteronormative stuff all over the media, join us for Queer Youth Movie Club!! Every last Saturday of the month the Youth Program @ the Center is hosting a Queer Youth Movie Club for LGBTQ youth and allies 24 and under. Come on in, relax, watch some queer entertainment, put in a request for the next film and meet new peeps! We will have a brief discussion of the film right after the movie. Oh, and we have a popcorn maker!!! This is a FREE and drop in. The fun starts at 2 pm.

The Youth Program is partnering with California Initiative to teach LGBTQ youth, 24 and under, how to defend themselves.

The rising number of crimes against LGBTQ youth in the city is unacceptable.  These workshops will arm you with tools and techniques you can use if you ever find yourself in an unsafe situation.
