CAN Coalition

Mission: The CAN coalition is a gathering of community members, youth, and professionals who are committed to building a world where LGBTQ young people thrive as healthy, equal, and complete members of society. 

Vision: The CAN Coalition works directly with LGBTQ young people, ages 24 and under, through partnerships with local organizations, schools and youth development programs. Our focus is on leadership development, community building, activism and advocacy. We believe that as LGBTQ youth find safe spaces to develop and belong, they will be less likely to be at risk of drug and alcohol abuse, depression, and isolation that often plagues their peers. 

We are seeking people from various sectors in the community to join the CAN Coalition. Members of the Coalition serve as resources to one another and work together to create a community for the demographic we serve. Do you or your agency work with and/or support LGBTQ youth and their well-being? If so the CAN Coalition needs you!
