Youth Programs

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center provides a variety of youth programs to build youth leadership, build community, encourage healthy living, and to promote artistic expression for LGBTQ+ youth in the Lehigh Valley. We believe in a brave space model where our center is an affirming space for LGBTQ+ youth to be themselves. 

A parent or guardian must accompany youth program participants under 14. Adults who are not accompanying a child may not attend youth programming. Community partners and press must receive advanced staff approval to attend any youth program.
