We are a group of LGBTQ+ youth and allies who come together and make memories. We support one another and recognize one another for who we are, not who the world wants us to be. We are truly safe to be ourselves, and the staff support us in all we want to do.
We pick the activities that we do every month. We can talk about issues that affect all of us, like challenges around being LGBTQ+ in school, what do we need from allies, or tips and tricks for challenging gender roles and expectations. We can learn about safer sex and HIV prevention in fun ways, learn about healthy relationships, and what other members of our LGBTQ+ community are up to.
Despite all that serious talk, we are actually way more fun than that. Even on days where we’re serious, there’s always food, games, music, and people to lighten the mood. Movie and TV marathons are a must. Dance parties definitely happen. Super Smash Bros. is brilliant. And if anything, the couches are comfy. And there’s always free food.
We hang out in the space Monday through Friday from 3pm-5pm, but on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday the fun starts at 5 with all the fun events!
There’s lots of ways to get involved with TEEN’MPower!
Check out our Facebook page where you can find our calendar for the month and see what’s going on. Feel free to stop by any of our events to meet us and learn more! You can also find us on Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter just by searching for teenmpower.
The best way to be involved is to join the Core Group. This group decides everything we do, plans the events we hold, and sets the tone for what the group wants to achieve. To become a Core Member, you must come to half of the events in a month, and stay past five for half of those. Being a Core Member has perks, too. You get a free shirt, other swag we have, and you can get gas cards or gift cards. Extra bonus is that you get to participate in outings around the community for free (laser tag or Cliff’s, anyone?). Keep in mind, you can still come to any of the events whenever you want, even if you aren’t a Core Member. Core meetings are not exclusive, and your opinion is always heard.
