Mission Statement

Create safe environments where young people can be themselves in a bully-free zone, achieve self-confidence and be proud of who they are.

Description

Justin's Gift provides regular social events for LGBTQ youth and their ally friends. Though the majority of our events are focused on teens we also do provide some youth and family focused events. The organization also works to create safe spaces within schools and other organizations that work with youth. This goal is achieved through consultations and trainings. We also work as a resource to help connect families and institutions to mental health support.

Justin's Gift works to fulfill the needs of youth based on Maslow's Hierarchy Theory of Needs. Until youth's basic needs are met, they are not able to focus on learning. Life is challenging enough, without the additional challenge of not having an education,. A priority of Justin's Gift is to inspire yputh to complete their education. Justin's Gift will help fill the following need, belonging, self-esteem, self-respect, and ultimately a realization of their importance in the world.
