Grantmakers for Education


June 16, 2023, 12:00 pm ET


Supporting LGBTQ+ Youth in Out-of-School Time Spaces

Join the EdFunders OST Impact Group to discuss how the out-of-school time field can support LGBTQ+ youth. We’ll discuss: 

  • The current environment of attacks on LGBTQ+ identities and lives.

  • How adults and peers in out-of-school spaces can provide support.

  • The importance of using an intersectional lens to understand the impact of racial, gender, ethnic, religious and other bias.

  • What funders can do to support youth organizations and the young people they serve.

  • The importance of affirming LGBTQ+ young people’s aspirations, potential, joy, and capacity to thrive.



About the Series

Join the EdFunders Out-of-School Time Impact Group for an ongoing conversation with funders, practitioners and other field leaders centered on learning about and with the out-of-school time sector, focusing on essential issues in OST now and in the future. Each video call will dive into a specific content area, challenge, and/or opportunity for the field and feature experts in the sector and philanthropy.

Register once for the ongoing series and join as your schedule allows. Already registered? We’ll send you a reminder of your meeting access beforehand.

Calls are scheduled from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. ET on the third Friday of each month.
