Become a Sponsor / Purchase a Program Ad

On Sunday, May 22, 2016, Pride for Youth (PFY), a project of Long Island Crisis Center, will be hosting “Back To The Beach” at The Crescent Beach Club in Bayville from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.  We are asking you to be a sponsor of this celebratory evening for Long Island’s LGBT community and its straight allies. 

Founded in 1993, at a time when LGBT youth were often either a hidden population or targets of ridicule and rejection by their schools, families and communities, Pride for Youth provided a safe place of acceptance, support and free services.

Twenty-three years later, with a record of helping thousands of young people, a steady growth of programs, services and advocacy has continued. On a daily basis, young people walk through PFY’s doors. Some are in deep crisis, some are lacking support in their communities, schools and homes, and some are desperate to make connections in the LGBTQ community to break out of isolation. And, for all, Pride for Youth is a place of equality and opportunity. 

We are asking you to help us continue to play a pivotal role in supporting these young people through PFY’s programs that: instill self-awareness, self-esteem and self-acceptance through free counseling and support services; provide socialization and networking opportunities in a safe, nurturing and non- judgmental environment; empower individuals through its youth leadership opportunities program; encourage and teach healthy lifestyles with its free HIV/AIDS/STD, etc. testing and health education and medical services; and, break down barriers in the general population through its community education workshops throughout Long Island.
