Youth Guardian Services

aka YGS   |   Ithaca, NY   |  www.youth-guard.org

Mission

Founded by a gay teenager in 1997, Youth Guardian Services has modestly grown to be a life-saving operation that helps support nearly 1,000 gay and questioning youth on a daily basis. One reason that YGS is so unique is that it is founded on the principle that together youth can make real positive differences in the lives of other youth. Most of the organization's project staff are youth, and all of the Executive Staff, as well as 60% of the organization's Board of Directors are young people who are 25 years old or younger. Strong adult-youth partnerships, in addition to its unique niche using Internet-based projects that are managed by youth volunteers is what makes this organization successful in its mission to provide support services to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning, straight supportive, and HIV+ youth.

YOUTH Lists

YGS was formed from three main projects, that continue to be the cornerstone of the organization to this day. The YOUTH Lists (YOUTH13-17, YOUTH17-21, and YOUTH21-25) are three email-based support groups for gay and questioning youth in three different age groups. Each list is managed by a group of youth volunteers who are of the same age group as the email list subscribers. We also run the STR8 List for straight youth who have friends or family members who are gay. Other YGS projects include the SCHOOLS List (to help end homophobia in schools) and the GLBSO List (for gay/lesbian/bisexual student organizations at the college level), as well as other projects still in development.
