Youth Group

Mondays from 6:00-8:30 pm at Mt. Auburn Presbyterian, 103 William Howard Taft Road, Cincinnati Ohio, 45219.

We are a safe and welcoming space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and their allies to gather. Each week we explore a topic of interest to middle and high school-aged youth (age 11+) with an emphasis on LGBTQ issues. Youth group also includes weekly social time and a quarterly social outing or activity. GLSEN Youth Group relies on a series of youth generated ground rules to keep our space supportive and positive. We participate in days of action sponsored by GLSEN national and provide opportunities and resources for group members to organize actions in their school community, such as Day of Silence and Ally Week.

Youth Group meets every Monday at Mt. Auburn Presbyterian Church 103 William Howard Taft Rd. in the Social Room from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm. It is an informal setting and snacks are provided. We enter from the back of the building by the parking lot. Mt Auburn Presbyterian Church is conveniently located by UC's campus. Quarterly social outings (and infrequent other youth group meetings) are held off site. Though our meetings are held in a church, Youth Group has no religious affiliation. We thank Mt. Auburn Presbyterian Church for generously sharing their space with us.

Adults dropping off youth at group have begun to gather informally at the Panera on Calhoun Street. Google maps says it's a two minute drive or a seven minute walk.
