Why Helping Our LGBTQ+ Community Matters?
It is estimated that LGBTQ+ youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. This is due, in part, to the lack of support they often face from family and friends. Corporate sponsorships can help change this by providing much-needed resources and support to our LGBTQ+ community.
Support Teens. Save Lives.
Founded in 1992 as a response to the alarming statistics documenting high rates of suicide among gay and lesbian teens, ALSO Youth has provided critical advocacy, leadership, support, and outreach programs to help foster safe communities for all of our nations youth. Now, nearly 30 years later, ALSO Youth operates as a non-profit organization that provides structured support services, education programs, advocacy, and referrals for LGBTQ+ youth, their families, and their friends.
Provide Crucial Funds for Materials
As a corporate sponsor, your donations go directly towards the materials we need to run all of ALSO Youth’s critical programs for teens. In addition to ensuring the continued use of the safe spaces where we conduct our enriching programs, your support helps us purchase essential technological equipment like headsets to ensure privacy for teens during remote sessions, books for all of the youth who participate in our monthly book clubs, invaluable educational materials, food, and more. You can check our Amazon Wishlist to see the kinds of materials we need.
