RESOURCES

National Youth Pride Services is a intellectual, creative urban movement that focuses on socially forward, leadership and development activities for black LGBT young adults . It is not a local “drop-in” center. Our main objective is advocating for black youth on the national level and creating leaders to do just that. To apply to become a member of NYPS click here

Youth Programs We Reccomend

Note: If you are black and LGBT there are limited resources available to you in the U.S. compared to non black LGBT youth. Here we try and suggest a few:

United Black Ellument. Youth from all over the country voted this as #1. Enough said. http://ubedallas.org/

Ruth Ellis Center. A favorite of Wanda Sykes, we had the pleasure of co-presenting with them at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit this year. A who doesnt love the story of Ruth Ellis? http://www.ruthelliscenter.org/for-donors

Power House Project was voted #1 by youth for their unique social marketing campaigns. They are experts at reaching the youth that really need the message. http://www.powerhouse-project.org/

Us Helping Us. How could you not support an organization with that name? http://uhupil.org/donations

Ujima Empowerment House. We started out in a church as well. Grassroots is the best route to reaching the masses, just ask the Obama campaign. http://www.firstgraceucc.org/AkronAIDSCollaborative/AACUjimaEmpowementHouse/tabid/47391/Default.aspx
