Since 1998 the Sexual & Gender Minority Youth Resource Center (SMYRC) has created safety and support for LGBTQQ youth in Oregon, through youth empowerment, community building, education and direct services. SMYRC is a program of Q Center. SMYRC provides safe, supervised, harassment-free, and alcohol- and drug-free spaces for sexual minority youth 23 and younger. Youth gather to participate in positive activities like art, music, community organizing, youth development, education, peer support, support groups, case management, counseling, and job readiness preparation.
