LYRIC Q Group Evaluation
LYRIC (Lavender Youth Recreation and Information Center)
September 2019 - June 2020
LYRIC’s School-Based Initiative (SBI) Q Groups support middle and high school queer, transgender, gender nonconforming, and questioning youth in school settings through structured group programming that addresses issues such as identity, relationships, and queer sexual health.
Q Groups are confidential, school-based support groups for SFUSD students. They address barriers to positive identity formation and self-esteem building. The weekly, cohort-based groups increase awareness of gender diversity through topics such as coming out, healthy relationships, and gender identity development, and navigating systems as LGBTQ+ youth.
ETR provides evaluation support to LYRIC by hosting pretest and posttest surveys among middle school and high school Q Group participants and will share a final evaluation report with LYRIC.
