Prism is an LGBTQ+ youth group for youth ages 11-18 years old. Prism offers fun and educational programming, resources, support, and mentorship focused on LGBTQ+ middle and high school aged youth in the Mid-MO area. We meet every Thursday evening from 6:30pm-8pm. Prism has volunteer coordinators (25 years of age or older) who plan meetings and activities. Our coordinators go through a background check and interview process, and also receive orientation on best practices for working with LGBTQ+ youth. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer coordinator for Prism, please contact us at prism@thecenterproject.org. History of Prism: Prism was started by LGBTQ+ youth after the murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student, in 1998. LGBTQ+ young people in Mid-MO needed a safe space to process this traumatizing event. Prism met in various places in the Columbia area, and finally found its home at The Center Project in the early 2000s. Prism has continuously offered support to LGBTQ+ youth since its formation. What our meetings look like: Meetings begin with introductions where we share our name and pronouns. This is so everyone knows how to respectfully interact with one another! We then typically do an activity (craft, games, workshops, education, movies, discussion), and also allow for some free time. Since Prism can often be a high-energy space, there is a designated quiet space provided for youth who need a calm place during meetings. Parents / guardians are welcome to meet the coordinators and check out our space during drop-off, but we ask that parents / guardians leave after that so youth can have their own space and privacy.
