Project Q - Youth Services

Project Q is the “for youth, by youth” youth development program of the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center. The program serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and allied (LGBTQA) youth ages 13 to 24 in the greater Milwaukee area. The program provides opportunities for the development and leadership of these youth in a safe, accessible space.

Visit our Project Q webpage created by PQ youth for the youth.


Project Q serves over 800 unduplicated youth each year, and approximately 150 of those youth receive extensive case management services where staff meet one-on-one with youth to assist them.

Scholarship Resources


The mission of Project Q is supported by the following goals:

  • To provide culturally relevant, contemporary programs in a “for youth, by youth” space that aim for the positive cultural, social, educational, and emotional development of young adults;

  • To advocate for and collaborate with programs and organizations that meet the varied needs of LGBTQA young adults and their communities;

  • To empower young adults to make healthy (informed) decisions about sexual health (such as HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted infections, and pregnancy.) as well as personal wellness (finances and relationships, for example);

  • To design and implement activities which ensure diversity in every aspect of Project Q; and,

  • To provide a space that affirms LGBTQA young adults to fully identify and express themselves without fear of ridicule and harassment.
