Youth Peer Support
At METRO Youth Peer Support, group facilitators offer a supportive, safe virtual space for LGBTQ+ youth, ages 13-17, to express their personal experiences, stories, and identities. Youth are encouraged to learn more about the community, share their stories, find support through each other, learn new skills, and more. People of all gender expressions, identities, and sexual orientations are welcome!
Empowering Our Youth: In a 2019 Programs Survey, 100% of surveyed youth reported an increase in confidence after attending METRO programs.
LGBTQ+ Youth Peer Support participants can stay connected by joining our private Facebook group or by following a peer-led Instagram account @METROYouthFL. We’ve even got a Facebook group for parents of LGBTQ+ youth, as well.
