Frequently Asked Questions
How do I join?
Youth group meetings at Outright are casual and fun. Anyone ages 12-19 can come any Friday night. Just show up and be you! There is no commitment required to join. Come whenever you can and we'll be happy you did! We might ask for your age and hometown, just to keep track of who is using our services. And if you want to, you can sign up for our mailing list to keep up with any special events we organize.
What should I expect at a meeting?
There are typically 20 to 30 kids at meetings and 4 facilitators. The facilitators are trained and trustworthy adults (who have had full background checks.) We usually start by introducing ourselves. Then, we split into two smaller groups based on age (for instance, ages 12-15 and ages 16+) so that we can share anything from our week that we want to. You can always pass if you don't feel like sharing. Sometimes we end up talking about a specific challenge or highlight in somebody's life. Other times, we just choose some interesting topic to discuss.
What if I'm not out yet?
People come to Outright at all different points in their lives. We accept everyone where they are. At Outright, we have a code of confidence, where we respect each other and keep things that are said at meetings at meetings. Facilitators keep all of your information confidential, as well. The only exception is that if facilitators believe that someone's personal safety is in jeopardy, they have a legal obligation to report that.
