Welcome to Odyssey Youth Center!

Odyssey Youth Center is a youth-led, adult-supported organization committed to creating, sustaining, and advocating for safe and affirming programs, policies, and services for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth community.

If you are a LGBTQQ youth between the ages of 14 and 21 in the greater Spokane region, Odyssey is here to help you by providing:

  • Safe Space. The center serves hundreds of youth just like you every year who come for friendship, support, community referrals, and security. We provide computers, board games, crafts, music, a resource library, and a kitchen to prepare hot meals.
  • Education. All of Odyssey’s programs are designed to help you become successful members of society. With the help of community partners we teach skills that range from how to live on a budget to problem-solving and resiliency training.
  • Advocacy. Odyssey can help you find your voice. Through our “Youth Voice” advocacy program, you can learn about leadership, justice, oppression, and long-term positive change. 

If you are a parent, educator or ally, Odyssey is here to help you by providing support, information, community referrals, and the opportunity to serve our LGBTQ youth. Our Resources page lists local, regional, and national organizations, support groups, and other youth centers that work as we do to support LGBTQ youth and the people in their lives.
