Youth Programs


OUT MetroWest offers free programs for LGBTQ+ and allied youth ages pre-K through high school. Our programs connect youth with supportive peers and LGBTQ+ adult role models. Our programs are held outside of school hours and provide social connection, emotional support, and resources that meet the unique needs of LGBTQ+ youth. Youth may join our programs at any time during the year. Some of our offerings include:

  • Shine: our program for gender expansive children ages pre-K through grade 5
  • Drop-In: a less structured alternative to our other regularly scheduled programs, for LGBTQ+ youth in grades 6-12
  • Nexus: our first-in-the-state program for LGBTQ+ youth in grades 6-8
  • Prism: our flagship program (previously known as WAGLY) for LGBTQ+ youth in grades 9-12
  • Umbrella: our trans-facilitated program for transgender, non-binary, and gender questioning youth in grades 9-12

You can access a calendar that lists our upcoming meetings and events on our calendar page.
