Outright Youth at Camp 2011

Outright Youth at Camp 2011

Outright Vermont is our state’s only queer youth advocacy, education, and programming organization. Whether we are in Vermont schools supporting Queer/Straight Alliances (QSAs/GSAs), planning our summer camp for queer youth, or pulling Fire Trucks up the Church Street Marketplace, Outright Vermont is actively making it better for queer youth every single day.  Our goals include:

  • Be a youth driven organization, that is deeply committed to youth empowerment.
  • Be an organization that values thee whole person (youth or adult), for their skills, time, and contributions to our mission.
  • Be an organization that creates queer community wherever we go, in all that we do.
  • Be a true statewide organization by establishing programming, educational work, and a donor/volunteer family in every single county of Vermont.
  • Be the go-to organization for queer youth education and support for schools and communities across the state.
  • Be fiscally sustainable, to ensure Outright Vermont’s mission continues for generations to come.
