OUR STAFF - Prism staff is available by phone.  Call Prism to reach (adult) youth counselors.

Our center is staffed by adults who are trained in LGBTQ issues - with the goal of creating a safe space just to be who you are, wherever you are on your life's journey.

"We strive to provide a safe and empowering place for LGBTQ Youth of Manatee County."

OUR MISSION - Prism Youth Initiative is dedicated to supporting, affirming, encouraging, enabling, and empowering the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth ages 13-23 of Manatee County. We are committed to doing this in an environment that is safe, hospitable, warm and welcoming. We want all to know that no matter where you are on your journey, Prism is a place where you will find unconditional acceptance.

Prism Youth is located at 501 5th St. E. in Bradenton.  We are currently open on the first Saturday of the month from noon till 3 pm (lunch provided) or by appointment.  Watch our website event page and Facebook page for posts about times and dates for other upcoming activities.
