At the moment, all of SMYAL’s youth drop-in programs are being held virtually. Select the program you are interested in below to learn more about how to join an upcoming group.
As we prepare to welcome youth back into the space for programming, we want to ensure the health and safety of all participants. To that end, we have developed COVID – 19 protocols that will be followed by all participants for in-person YDCE programming & events. If there is a positive COVID-19 exposure, the drop-in center may suspend programming for 10 days.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our drop-in programs and community spaces are a place where queer and trans youth can meet other young people who hold the same identities, talk about a wide variety of topics that impact them, find support, or just be in community with one another.
Drop-in programs are hosted virtually for the time being. As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, we will continue to reevaluate and update our programs.
Steps to joining SMYAL’s Discord Server:
If you are joining on a smartphone, you will be directed to a page that says “Addison_they/them21 invited you to join SMYAL Virtual Chat Space.”
Q Chat Space online discussion groups give you a dedicated space to come together with other youth and talk about topics relevant to your identities and experiences hosted by LGBTQ youth centers from across the country.
There are chats hosted every day of the week with rotating topics.
SMYAL hosts the chat on Fridays from 4:00-5:30 pm ET. Check out the full schedule at qchatspace.org.
