LGBTQ+ Teen Support Group

The Eliot Family Resource Center is excited to announce a new weekly support group for LGBTQ+ high school students. The group will meet Thursdays from 4 to 5:30 p.m., beginning on November 4, at the Eliot Family Resource Center (548 Broadway, entrance on Maple Street).

Participation is confidential. We will explore topics including gender identity and expression, coming out to family or friends, mental health, religion and culture, relationships, sexual education, and more.  A meal will be provided each week for participants. Face coverings are required. Meetings will not be held on days when school is not in session.
