ADDITIONALLY, both individuals and business/corporations may choose to support one of our targeted "Ladder Programs" aimed at specific areas of Youth Development. (see below for a list of current programs)


Career & Secondary Education Counseling
If you are, or know a Job or College counselor or HR specialist who is interested in donating time on a regular basis to assist our Youth in planning college curriculum or prep for job interviews please contact Sofia Smith, Program Manager at [email protected].

BookClub draws our Youth into the world of reading with published works of note. We maintain a wish list of books approximately 14 copies of each are needed at a time. Please see our complete wish list below if you would like to supply books. *If you are an author and would like to submit your works for consideration to BookClub, please contact Amir Moini at [email protected].

PenPushers is our Spoken Word program. Youth are lead through the creative process that leads to both written and spoken word performance. Learning to express a narrative through writing is just one way we help our Youth learn to express themselves in a meaningful and positive way. We can always make use of lined journal books (available at most bookstores). Please contact Amir Moini at [email protected].

OutSide Voices
A collaboration with the acclaimed LA Gay Men's Chorus, our Youth are working on a newly formed mixed LGBT chorus. This groundbreaking collaboration can use your support financially, or with snacks for rehearsal days (once weekly) or music stands.
Please contact Amir Moini at [email protected].

The young filmmakers' collaboration with OutFest. 5 Groups of young people take their own, original short films from concept, to script, to production to finished product. These films are exhibited in the short films program of Outfest. Your support of OutSet will be seen by audiences in many venues including the Outfest Film Festival in July. Financial support, specific equipment as well as craft services, wardrobe, hair/make up and more is all needed.Please contact Amir Moini at [email protected].

Mentoring Night
Wednesday evenings we gather as a community for dinner, and presentations of movies, speakers, and topics of interest to our youth. We are always on the lookout for Restaurants, Caterers, Food Trucks, and gift cards to local Supermarkets so that we can provide dinner for approximately 30 Young People each and every week of the year. On average, this works out to $150 weekly. Donors to Mentoring Night are always listed as sponsors on our HomePage – and are invited to our Holiday Party each year so that our Youth may thank them in person.Please contact Amir Moini at [email protected].
