Shay Harleston: I was able to get a program going.

A center dedicated to empowering LGBT youth, ages 13-23, to reach their fullest potential by providing a safe environment and provide a broad array of services such as after school tutoring, a library, and much more for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth in our local community.

      Knowing that there aren't that many places to go for LGBT youth to engage with each other, and become empowered community leaders in Kern County, it's imperative that a youth center for LGBT youth should be established.

      It's sorely need. Youth need a safe positive environment.

      The LGTBQ youth in the community need a place where they can get together and just be who they are without worrying about others judging them.

      I myself am bisexual and I don't have many places I can go and meet other who are like me and know what I have and still go through.
