Drop-In

As of Monday, March 7, we are back IN PERSON! Note our COVID-19 policy requires proof of vaccination and masks to attend in-person programs. Please check our calendar for the most up-to-date information about program times and locations.


All LGBTQ+ youth in grades 6 through 12 are welcome to attend Drop-In at our Framingham location. Drop-In features free time for activities like arts and crafts, board games, homework help, music, reading, and time with friends. WiFi access is available, so feel free to bring your device. Meetings are facilitated by LGBTQ+ adults.

The goal of the “Drop-In” program is to enable a less structured alternative to our other regularly scheduled programs, and young people are welcome to participate in both types of programming. While Drop-In is not a therapeutic program, a Wayside Youth & Family Support Network clinician is present at Drop-In meetings for young people who need extra support.

You do not need to confirm attendance to participate in drop-in, and all meetings are free. The meetings are held in English. If you need interpretation, please contact us about the options available. If you have any other questions before you participate, see the FAQ section or send an email to the program team.
