The Rainbow Umbrella LGBT Youth Group
is seeking donors to fund the operating cost of the weekly youth group. Rainbow Umbrella (RU) is an activities based program
that provides support and empowerment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender,
intersex, queer and questioning (LGBTIQQ) youth ages 13 to 23 and their allies. RU is a positive, safe and welcoming space, free of drugs and alcohol.
The youth group meets weekly on Friday
nights from 6:30-8:30pm and aims to provide a safe and supportive space for
LGBT+ youth to socialize, share experiences, and offer mutual support through
the often-difficult years of adolescence.
An adult volunteer facilitates each
meeting, and weekly activities focus on
· fun and games
· and healthy
dialogue surrounding issues facing our youngest community members
The cost to sponsor one youth for a
full year is $260. Your dollars cover modest expenses that include the meeting
space rental fees, food and drinks, field trips, special events, and art
Please consider donating at a level
that feels comfortable for you. This youth group is a much-needed resource for
these kids, and the only one of its kind in Ventura!
