Rainbow Youth is an Auckland-based organisation providing support, information, advocacy and education for queer and trans* young people (aged between 13 and 28), their friends and Whānau, and those who work with queer and trans* youth..
At Rainbow Youth we aim to foster a safe, inclusive, accepting, diverse family environment. We are drug-free, smoke-free and alcohol-free.
The Rainbow Youth drop-in centre is for queer and trans* youth, their friends and whānau. It’s open Monday to Friday, 10 – 5pm, but is sometimes closed during these hours if staff have to leave the building. If you’re making a special trip, please contact us first on (09) 376 4155 to make sure we’ll be there.
Our groups are a place where young people can come together to meet others like themselves, chat about life and just relax. To find a group that suits you, check out our list of groups in your area.
The Rainbow Youth education programme offers schools, students, and organisations the opportunity to learn more about diverse sexualities and gender identities in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Visit our schools page for more information.
