Center Spotlight

Stories, Successes, Challenges, and Innovative Solutions from CenterLink Member Centers

CenterLink has launched our Center Spotlight Initiative – a place where we share the wonderful work our member centers are doing around the country and the world. We are proud to share their stories, their successes, their challenges, and innovative solutions! Our hope is that this blog will provide ideas and creative solutions for LGBTQ+ communities everywhere.

If you would like your center to be spotlighted, help other centers learn from your initiatives, or just share your amazing projects, initiatives, or programs with the CenterLink network and beyond, please contact us today!

If you would like to learn more from our member centers directly find their information in our LGBT Center Directory.

Tell us about your existing center’s project, program, or initiative that you would like to Spotlight.

Inside Out’s Youth Advisory Council was created as a part of our Positive Youth Development model several years ago. In recent years, it’s been a part of a local youth advocacy coalition, called UpRISE, which focuses on addressing the root causes of youth tobacco use through a social justice lens. As a part of this coalition, our YAC has been tackling systemic issues like lack of access for LGBTQ+ youth to affirming mental health care providers, which impacts youth gravitating toward unhealthy coping mechanisms, like tobacco use.
