FAQ: Friday Night Group
How do I join?
Youth group meetings at Outright are casual and fun. 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 5-15 kids at meetings and 2-3 facilitators. The facilitators are trained and trustworthy adults (who have had full background checks.) We usually start by introducing ourselves. Then, we break into an activity and/or smaller groups based on age You can always pass if you don't feel like sharing.
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.
To keep both facilitators and youth safe we will have COVID-19 protocols in place during our in-person meetings. Safety is our highest priority. We ask the following:
We will be social distancing as much as possible, and hand sanitizer will be provided.
Masks are highly encouraged
We also ask all of our youth and facilitators to self-monitor and stay home if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have had close contact with anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19 as outlined by the CDC.
