Youth Center

 

Youth Group Activities

Youth Activity Nights are support, educational and social spaces for LGBTQ and ally youth. They meet on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 4pm to 7pm in the Drop-In Center. Activities include: Discussion Nights, Group Games, Film Viewings, Origami, Calligraphy, Art Lessons, Social Justice Workshops, Cooking Classes, Financial Literacy, College/Trade School Readiness, Field Trips, and so much more! We also work in lots of free time to mingle and socialize and meet other LGBTQ youth. Check out the monthly QVolution Calendar for the most up to date programming information.


Comprehensive Sex Education

Youth between the ages of 13 and 19 are invited to sign up for free Comprehensive Sex Education classes at The Center, with parental permission. Each 8-session class will cover contraception, consent, identity formation and understanding of HIV/STI prevention, featuring the core values of abstinence, protection and pregnancy prevention, in an LGBTQ-inclusive and gender-neutral environment.

Classes are offered on Wednesdays and Fridays,
3:30–5:30 p.m. on a revolving basis.
Email ajhuth@thecenterlv.org to find out
when the next class begins and to sign up.

The Center can also take its comprehensive sex education classes to other organizations, such as community centers, non-profit agencies, or other youth groups. Email ajhuth@thecenterlv.org for more information. 


Youth Events

Youth Prom

Every Spring, Qvolution hosts an inclusive Prom for 13-24 year olds. At our Prom, youth can be their authentic selves, and bring who they want to as their date. LGBTQ youth have the opportunity to enjoy themselves in a safe environment, without fear of bullying or harassment. we never charge entrance for our prom, to ensure all youth have access.

Pride Family Skate Night

During Las Vegas Pride, The Center teams up with Pride and our community partners to offer Pride Family Skate Night, a fun night of skating and games for the whole family!

Youth Halloween

What would October be without dressing up and having a party? Youth Halloween features fun costume contests with prizes, music, dancing, and lots of food! Don't miss the photo booth!

Youth Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving can be a tough time for an LGBTQ youth, especially if they are not out, or have little family acceptance and approval. To that end, we offer a free Thanksgiving dinner every year in November for youth.
