The Story

Rainbow Youth has operated weekly since 1995, serving and supporting the LGBTQ+ youth of the Salem, Oregon area.

The organization is 100% volunteer-run and is sustained by the generous support of its community, including many individual donors - that's you!

This year, we aim to proactively secure funding for the year so that we can focus on the programming and support our youth members need, and build longer-term goals for growing our programs.

Our weekly activities include:
Holding safe space for LGBTQ+ youth 12-18, serving dinner, providing individual advocacy and support, and offering educational & community programming.

Our annual events & field trips include:
Gay Skate
Pride Prom
End of the School Year BBQ
Graduation Celebration for youth aging out
Oregon Queer Youth Summit
Shrewsberry Renaissance Faire
Pumpkin Patch Visit
Halloween Party
Holiday Celebrations

We've read the reports on queer & trans youth and, particularly in times of uncertainty, we know that Rainbow Youth makes a difference in the lives of the young people we serve. Our budget is small and a little goes a long way - please help us continue this programming through the 2017 year!

Please contact us at [email protected] with questions or to get involved - thank you so much for your support!

Pride Prom was held on March 29th, 2017! This is our second annual prom was made possible by Capitol City Theater, a local comedy club. Capitol City generously donated the space, as well as holding a stand up comedy fundraiser for us! Several adult allies came to chaperone, we had food donated from local business, a photo booth, a professional DJ donated her time and talents, and outstanding performances from 4 fabulous drag queens! We feel so supported by our community. 

We had 100 youth come and dance, eat, get photos and have a fun time. This is DOUBLE the amount of last year! It means so much to our youth to have a place to go and feel safe, seen, and respected. Thank you so much for all your support!
