About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

About YouthERA

Excerpts last viewed online 2020 Jun 15 from:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

The Zia Young Adult Access Center provides peer support for young adults ages 16-22.  We offer youth-held and peer-run, community spaces, groups, and events.  Zia prioritizes youth autonomy, liberation, and support. Our concentrations are to support young adults who express and self-identify with different human experiences (societal and/or social class impacts like trauma, mental health, and substance use).

We offer support and advocacy for young adults and require no registration, referral, or health insurance.  All of our peer support is FREE of cost and is intended to be accessible.

As a peer-led group, our aim is to offer self-determined resource connections (education, employment, family support, and more).

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

The Zia Young Adult Access Center provides peer support for young adults ages 16-22.  We offer youth-held and peer-run, community spaces, groups, and events.  Zia prioritizes youth autonomy, liberation, and support. Our concentrations are to support young adults who express and self-identify with different human experiences (societal and/or social class impacts like trauma, mental health, and substance use).

We offer support and advocacy for young adults and require no registration, referral, or health insurance.  All of our peer support is FREE of cost and is intended to be accessible.

As a peer-led group, our aim is to offer self-determined resource connections (education, employment, family support, and more).

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

  1. Ongoing Zoom Drop-In Groups, Mondays-Fridays
  • Brunch Club: 11 am- Noon; Afternoon Snack Break: 3-4 pm
  • FREE – Registration Required for first meeting
  • That’s right! After-school drop-in is going digital! Join us for Drop-In Groups every weekday to socialize and check in with girls you’ve missed from in-person drop-in, and welcome girls new to Ophelia’s Place!

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

online virtual peer support for youth and young adults

Join YouthERA online via Discord

Virtual Drop on Discord – Weekdays on Monday through Friday, 3-6pm PST (3 hours)

During Virtual Drop hours, youth can access multiple chat rooms, participate in video game competitions, take cooking classes, do mindfulness exercises, and watch movies, among other activities.

Visit the link: https://discord.com/invite/4n4h2K4

 

In addition, YouthERA offers

  • Twitch Stream Weekdays Monday-Friday @ 10am-1pm PST (Daytime, 3 hours) and 6pm-10pm PST (Evening, 4 hours)

YouthEra’s Twitch stream provides a safe and supportive opportunity for youth to have fun, receive peer support, and build community online. Any time a young person tunes in, they will have access to (at least) two youth peer support specialists, one who will be streaming and the other moderating the chat.

When you go to the link New world, you will automatically be sent an invite – all you need to do is join

  • One on One Virtual Peer Support

One of the most important ways our team of dedicated peer support specialists connects with youth is through one-on-one meetings, but sometimes it’s not possible to meet in person. The good news is that our team has been providing virtual peer support from the very beginning! Our team of state-certified direct service staff (youth peer support specialists and Wraparound youth partners) can provide one-on-ones via phone/text, through video chat, and over their various Youth Era-issued social media accounts including Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook.

About YouthERA

Excerpts last viewed online 2020 Jun 15 from:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheYouthERA/about/?ref=page_internal

YOUTH ERA WORKS TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE AND CREATE BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THE DEDICATED SYSTEMS THAT SERVE THEM.

The success of young adults affects all of us. Each of us, whether we realize it or not, benefits when a young person graduates from high school, finds a job that helps them pay their rent, or gains access to effective services and supports.
YouthEra creates solutions for communities across the country that look beyond short-term assistance for the few and toward sustainable support for the many. When YouthEra opens up a new drop-in center, saving communities hundreds of thousands of dollars, it’s not just the young people or even their families who benefit. With YouthEra services, young people have a much better chance of becoming happy, successful, and contributing adult members of their communities, and everyone reaps the rewards.
With your support, we are empowering young people to create personal, community and national change.
OUR IMPACT | YouthEra creates lasting positive change in the lives of young people and the systems that serve them. By uniting a diverse collective of young adults and organizations around innovative solutions, YouthEra impacts thousands each year.
OUR FOCUS | YouthEra works to provide accessible support services to all young people. We focus on direct service, training, and advocacy—the building blocks for creating lasting change for young people in communities across the country.
OUR WORK | YouthEra envisions a future where every young person has the opportunity to lead a happy, successful life, and whole communities flourish as a result. Every day, with the help of caring people like you, we are getting closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
The work we do is fueled by the unmatched dedication of our staff, the young people we serve, and the system partners we collaborate with who give their time and voices to empower young lives and improve our communities. Every day, our team creates positive change in a multitude of ways. Change happens when we support young people as they work to complete high school, find jobs, when we advocate for systems change, and so much more.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision

We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve.

About Ophelia’s Place

Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support.

At Ophelia’s Place we believe in girls’ strengths and encourage them to discover and nurture their gifts as they become young women. The goal of our work is to empower young women to make healthy, informed decisions about their many important life choices. By the simplest definition, we are a “community for girls.”  Our vision is that all girls are safe, valued and empowered.

Equity & Inclusion

Ophelia’s Place believes all girls, no matter their backgrounds, should feel valued. Our Equity & Inclusion Committee meets regularly to review Ophelia’s Place policy to ensure we maintain access to our services for all girls.

Vision
We envision a future in which girls of all backgrounds feel at home in Ophelia’s Place, and see themselves reflected throughout our organization. We are committed to ensuring all girls in our community feel safe, valued, and empowered, including those who are marginalized by experiences of oppression.

Mission
The mission of the Equity & Inclusion Committee is to embed equity and inclusion into all levels of the organizational framework of Ophelia’s Place. We work to center equity and inclusion in the culture of Ophelia’s Place. This lens is vital in eliminating health disparities across identity groups in the communities we serve. We pledge to increase our outreach and collaboration with diverse communities in order to improve access and utilization of our services by marginalized youth. Through strategic planning and program development, we can enhance the quality and relevance of our services for diverse communities of youth.
