Currently, Out Youth provides on-campus services to LGBTQ+ students in partnership with Communities in Schools of Central Texas as well as other social service or mental health liaisons on campus. During the school year 2018-19, Out Youth will be offering two curricula: Be YOU (Young, Outspoken, Unbreakable), and Tender and Tough: A Healthy Relationships curriculum. Both aim to improve youth wellbeing through weekly group counseling. Out Youth hopes to be able to expand services during the 2019 - 2020 school year, which would include:
- Providing a minimum of 10 psychoeducational support group sessions per campus per semester;
- Providing individual counseling services to 1 – 2 students per campus per semester, based upon need and availability of Out Youth personnel;
- Enhanced technical assistance for starting/maintaining a GSA or similar club on campus; training and professional development for CIS staff and other school personnel regarding gender and sexual diversity.
