Who Makes YOUTH IN POWER Happen?

Produced by the Pride Center of the Capital Region and supported in part by generous donations from our community, the camp is led by experienced professionals who identify as LGBTQA or straight allies. The Pride Center has comprehensive youth programming that has been serving the Capital Region for over 30 years. With the addition of YOUTH IN POWER, we hope to provide youth with a venue for personal discovery, empowerment, support and fun among peers and the wider LGBTQA community.
