Youth Center

​DROP-IN CENTERS IN SARASOTA & MANATEE COUNTIES

The ALSO Youth Drop-In Center is a safe and drug-free space where youth, are welcome to express themselves and find support, free of ostracism and bullying.

At ALSO Youth we believe that you should celebrate who you are, what makes you unique and why you matter. For members of our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth community, we provide a safe, inclusive and affirming environment to foster relationships, personal and professional skills and the evolution of identity.

We are open to young people between the ages of 13-24; our programs build self-esteem and help ready you for various life stages.

Programming Hours for both the Sarasota and Bradenton Centers have been fluctuating due to COVID-19. Please check the Youth Calendar for the most up to date information.

​​THANK YOU

In Spring, 2017, The Interior Design Society Sarasota Chapter planned, coordinated, and executed a renovation of ALSO Youth's Sarasota drop-in center that kickstarted a transformation for our organization, like never before.

Thanks to the Interior Design Society Sarasota Chapter (IDSSC), their partners, and many volunteers, ALSO Youth's Sarasota drop-in center has a new style and improved functionality!
