The Queer Youth Task Force (QYTF) is planning the first ever Spring Garden Mixer to introduce their work with youth to the community. Well known for the Annual Queer Youth Leadership Awards, the QYTF works year round to support Queer Youth in our schools. The QYTF has partnered with Santa Cruz City Schools since 2000 to improve the school experience for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Questioning (LGBTIQ) youth.

Youth who feel safe and are supported by adults at school and in the community are more likely to graduate than drop out.  In a recent survey of LGBTIQ youth those who can identify a supportive adult at school are more than twice as likely to say they are  planning to go to college.The QYTF works to educate adults and empower students to celebrate difference and make schools safer for all students and staff.Please join us in an informational celebration of the work being done in Santa Cruz to support youth in our schools and community.
