Project Name: Pride Youth Resiliency Project
Project Description: The Rainbow Pride Youth Alliance (RPYA) MAT Expansion Project will provide wraparound services to decrease the use of Opioids and other stimulants among transgender and gender diverse youth (TGNB), non-binary, (cisgender youth -children/adolescents whose gender identity and/or expression differs from their sex assigned at birth), and LGB youth of color, ages 12-24 in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.
The mission of Rainbow Pride Youth Alliance is to provide a safe, healthy, and enriching environment for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and intersex (LGBTQI) youth of the Inland Empire. We provide a safe space for young people to meet, make friends and participate in various weekly events and activities. We also offer support and resources for gender affirmation and community building. We are dedicated to facilitating activities and programs that enrich the lives of LGBTQ+ folks and promote creativity, health, and wellness for the positive mental health of our queer youth.
