Rainbow Families

Connecting, Supporting, & Empowering LGBTQ+ Families in the DMV

COLAGE

Whether your 2 1/2 years old or 18 years old, your child will have fun, make friends, and leave as proud of their family as ever before.

COLAGE: Ages 12-15 years old.

COLAGE unites people with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer parents into a network of peers and supports them as they nurture and empower each other to be skilled, self-confident, and just leaders in our collective communities. In partnership with Rainbow Families, COLAGE will be hosting a six-hour program (with an hour lunch break) to support youth ages 12-15 with one or more LGBTQIA+ parent or caregiver. 

Youth will focus on empowerment and community through creative workshops, opportunities to connect with others who share their experiences, inside advice, support from COLAGE mentors and more. Parent, friends, allies and intended parents are welcome to join us at 4:00 pm for a special youth presentation and story sharing event paired with Italian Ice. Parents and youth, register for the conference to join us! 

Older youth are welcome to join as mentors to younger youth. To sign up as a mentor please email COLAGE National Program Director, Kaley Fry, at kaley@colage.org.
