Civic-minded

Part of encouraging the growth of healthy and productive young people is to help them understand how they are connected to the various communities in their lives. Staff and volunteers make it a priority to bring up questions of how issues affect community at large (i.e. LGBT, GV, Indianapolis, the environment, etc.) and how the youth can create meaningful change within their communities. IYG offers opportunities such as Circle City Pride, AIDS Walk, and Out of the Darkness, for youth to coordinate and lead efforts to raise awareness and better society.

IYG is continually seeking to partner with other agencies or individuals who would like to offer civic-focused programming. Contact us if you or your organization have programming that you feel would be a good fit for IYG!
