Sexual and Gender Minority Youth (SGMY) Services and Technical Assistance services connect youth to resources that help them meet their goals. The program works to create an environment where youth can build positive relationships with peers and adults. Services are designed to address the developmental, emotional, mental health and safety needs of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning youth, and any youth who self identifies as a sexual or gender minority youth.SGMY centers youth voice and leadership by providing opportunities for youth to provide input to what they need from the space and adults. SGMY also educates the community so that LGBTQIA2S+ youth can have better experiences and feel safer.

SGMY focuses on 3 areas of support for LGBTQIA2S+ youth:
1. Counseling and basic needs support
2. Creating a safe and supportive space
3. Providing training and education to the community so that they may provide competent and relevant services to these youth.
