All Rainbow and Allied Youth Inc.'s Mission
To create a place of support, and provide information, advocacy, and resources in Charlotte County, Florida, for our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, plus, youth of all races, nationalities, and incomes.
Our drop-ins are a space for local Charlotte County youth 20 and under to connect, have fun, and get the tools they need to succeed. We regularly paint, play games, watch movies, and much more. We sometimes hold these hours in other locations, but this will always be specified in the event details.
We cultivate a space of safety and respect, one where youth can express themselves without fear of judgement.
We are currently practicing safe distancing guidelines. Our drop-ins are being held virtually via Zoom Conferencing and Discord, each Wednesday at 4pm.
Please email for details on joining in.
Hours are staffed by adult volunteers made up of allies and LGBTQ+ community members.
Unless otherwise specified, all hours are held:
1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month from 4-6PM

Caregivers and family over 21 are welcome from 4-4:30 to become familiar with the space, talk with volunteers, and get resources.
