LEAP (LGBTQ+ Education and Acceptance Project)

Project LEAP is a continuation of one of CAMBA’s past programs called Project ALY. At LEAP (LGBTQ+ Education and Acceptance Project), we strive to create a society where every LGBTQ+ young person can thrive within the loving embrace of their family and community. Our commitment to this mission means building bridges of understanding, empathy, and acceptance through our support groups, educational workshops, and one-on-one counseling offerings. We are dedicated to providing services that foster knowledge and awareness of accepting behaviors among families, caregivers, and community members, recognizing the profound impact these behaviors have on the physical health, mental well-being, and overall happiness of LGBTQ+ youth. We believe that by increasing the acceptance of LGBTQ+ youth within their family and community, we are saving lives.

Offerings: 

  1. Support groups for parents and families
  2. Educational workshops for parents, community members, educators, and service providers
  3. One-on-one counseling and conflict mediation for families and youth
  4. Filmmaking program for youth up to the age of 21
  5. Social marketing campaigns aimed at increasing acceptance of LGBTQ+ youth

All of our services are free of charge. ALL of our services are bilingual offerings in English and Spanish. If interested, please fill out our interest form here.
