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.
