Colors Youth Center

As an Initiative of Antioch University, Colors LGBTQ Youth Counseling and Community Center has partnered with Pueblo Nuevo Development (which runs Camino Nuevo Charter Academy) in the MacArthur Park district, and Antioch University Counseling Center, to create the nation’s first site for LGBTQ-Affirmative theory and practice devoted to the wellbeing of youth and their families.

Mission

Colors is a free LGBTQ Youth & Counseling Center serving the needs of Los Angeles-area Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) youth 24 and under.  COLORS opened its doors in January 2012 in Downtown Los Angeles, providing free therapy and support to LGBTQ youth and their families. Colors’ mission is to stop bullying and oppression through LGBTQ-Affirmative prevention methods, to address some of the symptoms of injured LGBTQ youths’ self-esteem, and to empower a new generation of LGBTQ individuals to become psychologically-minded leaders and citizens.
