Be YOU Expands to Serve More Schools this Fall

Out Youth is expanding its reach to youth in Title 1 middle schools and high schools with the help of Lead Clinician for School-based Services, Renée Randazzo, LPC-Intern (1). Thanks to a generous Opportunity Grant from the Saint David’s Foundation, Renée was hired in November to facilitate supportive counseling groups in middle schools and high schools in Central Texas, and is charged with the long-term vision of growing the program.

Out Youth’s “Second-Chance Prom” Offered Adults a Chance to Remake Memories

Almost everyone has a story from their high school senior prom ranging from magical to forgettable.

Out Youth’s second annual Second-Chance Prom Saturday, April 1, offered everyone the chance for a prom night “do-over.

Hosted by the W Hotel in downtown Austin, approximately 150 guests enjoyed an evening of dancing, entertainment and a silent auction amid tropical plants and decorations supporting the “Prom in Paradise” theme.

The event raised more than $20,000 for Out Youth and some of the proceeds helped support our annual Youth Prom for LGBTQ+ teens two weeks later at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School.

We’re grateful to our Prom Co-Chairs Suzanne Alley and Kody Silva (Out Youth Board Members) and their hard-working committee that included Out Youth board members Gabby Ayala, Krissi Lindsey, Nathan Michaud and Ted Burton. Plus Out Youth supporters Roseann Ferraro, Layne Box, and Crystal Lantrip.
