Community Outreach
Outright/ Lewiston-Auburn's outreach project started in 2000 as the Out in the Community speaker's bureau. Today our community outreach programs are available for schools, educators, youth serving agencies and others who are interested in helping to provide safer spaces for lgbtq youth. If you are interested in one of our Community Outreach programs or trainings, please !

Diversity Days
Outright/ L-A provides outreach to diversity days at schools such as Edward Little in Auburn, Lewiston High, Telestar in Bethel, and Dirigo in Dixfield.

Creating Safety for LGBTQ Youth Trainings
As part of our community outreach we provide trainings designed to increase awareness and sensitivity among educators and staff at schools, youth serving agencies and community groups. We often collaborate with New Beginnings Agency for Homeless and At-Risk Youth.

Intersecting Oppressions Workshops
This workshop was developed by youth and young adults at Outright L/A to address the multiple forms of oppression young GLBTQA people face and the connections between racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, ageism and other forms of oppression. This interactive two hour workshop gets youth talking about what oppression is, how privilege works, what it means to have power, and where stereotypes come from.
