Youth > IYG Center

Welcome to the IYG activity center!

IYG's LGBTQ Youth Activity Center is located at 3733 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN 46208.
All youth ages 12 - 20 are welcome. 

Basic Needs
Monday 4-7PM
Drop In Hours
Wednesday & Thursday from 3-9 PM
Friday from 3-11 PM. 

You do not need a referral to come to the IYG, you can just show up! Each night we have youth activities planned, free dinner, and plenty of space for you to hang out, get on the computer, relax in "The Pit," read LGBT-themed books in our library, attend an open or closed group (with permission), and meet new friends!

It's sometimes a good thing to come for the first time on a Wednesday or Thursday. There's usually only 20 - 30 youth and it's a little less intimidating and easier to meet people. It's okay to come on Fridays, but it's not unusual for there to be 70+ youth and can be a bit overwhelming. It may look like everyone knows each other except you, but that's really not the case! We just want you to feel welcome on your first visit...we want you to come back!


Programs, Rules, and Other Center Information

IYG has different kinds of programming for everyone at the activity center. Some are open to all (like art projects), some are open to the specific group you belong to (like Gender Verse). Some groups are cohorts (like Thrive).

We also have an education program and homework hours focused on our youth's academic success.
