Youth Programs

Empowering New Generations

Youth Programs at Metro Inclusive Health are designed to support the social and emotional empowerment of youth in our community and beyond. 

METRO staff facilitate safe, affirming spaces to help our newer generations navigate the transition to adulthood – from exploring their identities and interests, to navigating sexual health, to becoming empowered leaders in their own right.

Youth Socials & Hangouts

Our weekly Youth Nights in St. Pete are designed for teens (ages 13-17*) of all gender identities, expressions, and orientations, including allies!

They are seated around a coffee table, working on colorful posters, with art supplies scattered around. The room exudes a sense of community and collaboration, reflective of METRO Inclusive Health's commitment to providing welcoming spaces for activities and support.

Closing The Gap

Between the ages of 13 and 24 and want to learn more about sexual health? Check out the Closing the Gap program. Clarify myths about HIV/AIDS, learn how to protect yourself, and converse with others about how you, your family, and friends may be affected.

Navigating Success

Navigating Success educates, increases awareness, and prevents substance misuse and HIV/AIDS through interactive group sessions, 1-on-1 goal setting, and social activities. We offer two programs for young people between the ages of 13-17 (Street Smarts) and 18-24 (Color it Real) who reside in Hillsborough or Pinellas Counties. Participants can earn up to $40 incentive upon completion.
