What is Little SMYALs?
Little SMYALs is a group dedicated to 6-12 year olds to provide young people a safe(r) space to hang out and meet new people, access resources, and gain support. Join us for art and crafts, enrichment activities, storytime, food, field trips, and all-around fun!
When and where does Little SMYALs meet?
Little SMYALs for queer and trans youth ages 6-12 has gone virtual!
When: The second and last Saturday of the Month, 10-11am
Where: In a private, Zoom-hosted room. Link provided upon registration.
Can parents and siblings stay during programming?
One parent/ caregiver must be available for the first 5 minutes of the virtual program. This is primarily to help your child adjust to the virtual platform, but also to assist with any technical issues that may arise! SMYAL staff will also be able to answer any of your questions at this time.
How much does it cost?
Little SMYALs is free of cost for all attendees.
Do I have to pre-register?
In order to attend this month’s groups, you must reserve your spot ahead of time! You will need a phone, iPad, computer, etc. with access to the internet in order to participate. Youth can join with video, audio, or via chat. We recommend joining with both video and audio, to most closely mimic our in-person groups.
Click HERE to register your child for our upcoming meetings. You’ll receive a copy of the Zoom link once you register. There is no cap to registration, and you can register a young person up until the group begins.
