Youth Programs

We believe empowering, respecting, and honoring the individuality of our youth, which provides the foundation for our youth-adult partnership model of service delivery. All Rainbow Alley activities are created by and facilitated by youth participants with trained adults providing supervision with a focus on peer-to-peer support and education. Our youth leaders are trained in peer-based support, safer sex education, and HIV prevention.
