Rainbow Alley is a drop-in center designed to support LGBT youth and their allies ages 12-21. Rainbow Alley provides health services, counseling and referral, youth-led events and activities, and life resources, all in a warm, welcoming, safe and supportive space.
Youth who access our facility are welcome to use our free services, including a medical clinic, computer lab, library, kitchen and open hang-out space. We also have a dance floor, ping-pong table and a VCR/DVD player.
Our drop-in centers in Denver and in Ft. Collins are drug-, alcohol-, tobacco- and hate-free. All Rainbow Alley activities are created and run by youth-participants with trained adults providing supervision. We believe in honoring individuality, empowerment and respect in our youth-adult partnership model of service delivery. Rainbow Alley focuses on peer-to-peer support and education. Youth leaders are trained in peer based support, safe sex education and HIV prevention.
