Project 13 is an Oasis program specifically for queer and questioning middle school youth ages 11-14 in the South Puget Sound. Our program offers youth a safe space to gather, learn, and connect with peers for eight consecutive weeks during after-school hours.
During Project 13, youth can look forward to weekly activities and discussions facilitated by staff and volunteers where they can build positive self-identity, community support, and critical thinking skills around consent, healthy relationships, and healthy decision-making.
Because these program topics build on one another, youth involved in Project 13 must attend all 8 weeks to get the most out of this program. We ask that families commit to this first 8-week time-frame. After this 8-week cycle, we will continue to offer activity-based programming on Wednesdays prior to the start of our next cycle with new youth.
While in the target ages of 11-14, youth are encouraged to stay involved with Project 13 through as many program cycles as they like. Our curriculum will discuss topics in different ways, with new activities and angles to frame our discussions through. Youth will get something new out of each 8-week cycle they participate in!
