THRIVE of Southwest PA launched in July of 2015 to fill the gaps in support for LGBTQIA students in schools around the region. THRIVE’s unique mission is to create gender-inclusive schools by focusing on a systems change approach to how schools support, affirm, and celebrate LGBTQIA students, families, and staff. This model requires that we work within the school system, most frequently with administrators and occasionally with educators, students, and their families. We advocate for policy change, provide training to school staff, and support student groups, such as Gay/Straight Alliances (or the more inclusive name Gender & Sexuality Alliances). As we work with these schools, we see a shift in the attitudes of staff, student, and communities towards LGBTQIA youth and research show us, that when attitudes and systems change, LGBTQIA youth are more likely to succeed in and out of school.

For those of us working with youth, it’s important to talk about a huge shift that is impacting young people in our country. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), on behalf of President Trump’s administration, announced that it will rescind Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the immigration program also known as DACA. Over the course of the next couple of months, the administration plans to phase out and eventually eliminate DACA, which deferred deportation for undocumented individuals, people who entered the U.S. as children (a community often referred to as “Dreamers”). This is something that affects all of us, at all levels of the non-profit field, but for those working directly with youth it’s important to be informed about the big question on Dreamers’ minds, “What happens now?”

As service providers, mentors, coaches, teachers, and everyone in between, we should know that youth are going to come to us for answers. We may not have all the answers, and that is completely okay! But here are some helpful points to know moving forward:
