About Vista Youth Center - 509-396-5198
Empowering Tri-Cities Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer, Questioning and Allied Youth
Because LGBT students are three times as likely as non-LGBT students to say they do not feel safe at school, and 90% of LGBT students have been harassed or assaulted during the past year*, we believe the need for the center is paramount to the Tri-Cities youths safety and health.
We work with LGBTIQQA individuals 14-21 years old and offer unique combinations of direct service, social service, referrals. Our programs are youth-driven and based on the model of peer support and leadership.
