LGBT Youth Empowerment

We empower LGBT youth across the Twin Cities to create community and cultivate the next generation of leaders

OUR LAST 18 YEARS:

In 1991, a group of concerned adults and youth gathered around a
kitchen table to discuss a concern. There were no safe and supportive,
sober and drug-free places—or safe spaces—for lesbian, gay, bisexual
and transgender (LGBT) youth. Through a unique youth/adult partnership,
District 202 opened its doors less than a year later.

Then something remarkable happened in this newly
created “safe space.” LGBT youth created a new community of their own
design, without the daily isolation or pressures of those times. And
with it, these youth found their voices, built their self-confidence
and mentored their peers. They became empowered.

This pioneering “safe space” model of District 202
gave birth to six LGBT youth centers in other states and a national
LGBT youth-serving organization.

“Safe Space” Came at a Cost:

Maintaining and staffing a 7,000 square foot facility is not cheaalone cost District 202 an average of
$8,700 per month. And staffing the center during our limited open hours
dramatically increased our administrative costs.

Many of these fixed expenses limited the our funding
and our flexibility to deliver programming. These costs also limited
our outreach to the greater community.

2009 & BEYOND:

District 202’s mission has not changed, but how it delivers on that
mission has. We continue to empower LGBT youth through a unique blend
of face-to-face interaction at venues, classes and programs that are
held throughout the Twin Cities and online.

Creating youth community locally and online is the
most efficient and effective use of our funds and our community’s
resources. It allows us to realign our spending on programming,
mentorship, outreach and community building events.

For the first time, District 202 can offer youth
outside the Twin Cities a place to find community online through
District 202’s web site and secure social networking environment.
Through our web site and our telephones, we will continue to refer LGBT
youth and their families to opportunities and services in the region.

Now, LGBT youth can come to one of District 202’s
many monthly social events and participate in a variety of programs,
often administered by youth. These events and programs offer community
for those youth and can provide youth with a wide range of valuable
skills and tools they need to be as successful as they desire as they
move forward in life.
