South Bay Youth Center
The San Diego LGBT Community Center’s South Bay Youth Center (SBYC) in Chula Vista will provide similar programming to The Center’s Hillcrest Youth Center, offering a drop-in and recreational center for LGBTQ and non-binary youth, youth living with HIV, and their families and allies.
Established in 2019 to meet the increased demand for services for LGBTQ+ youth and families and to increase access to vital support and programs, the SBYC will offer gender identity groups, arts programs, social activities, tutoring and discussion groups. A therapist will also be available on site.
The South Bay Youth Center will be open three days a week from 3-7pm – on Wednesdays for youth ages 18-24, on Thursdays for 14-18 year olds and Fridays for those ages 10-13. In addition, the Youth Center will be open on Monday evenings for Mi Familia, a support group for parents of LGBTQ youth.
