Pride Group Community Introduced

Youth Crossroads has begun implementing a ‘PRIDE’ group curriculum at Morton District 201 high schools. The group is focused on working with LGBTQ+ youth of all gender identities and sexual orientations to provide a safe and supportive environment. The group is facilitated by Youth Crossroads counselors and a school faculty member to work with students to ensure that they feel heard and supported at school. LGBTQ+ youth can face marginalization and exclusion in school, at home, and in their community. Group topics include exploring personal choices, one’s identity with culture, self-acceptance, and healthy relationships. The group has been an important addition to Youth Crossroads services to bring students together to explore their identities and advocating for themselves and others in the LGBTQ+ community
