For LGBT youth, safe spaces can be hard to find


In this week's Youth Development Insight blog post, Joe Rand discusses how access to safe spaces is a crucial part of development and exploring self-identity for adolescents. For youth programs, this is a fundamental concern. Only when youth feel emotionally and physically safe are they able to present themselves in an authentic way and engage in positive development. Without that authenticity, true development cannot take place. What do you think? Join the conversation!
