MAKE A DONATION
Identity Youth Center is an affiliate of the Southern Tier AIDS Program, a not-for-profit, 501c(3) organization, and we are extremely grateful to the government agencies, private foundations, corporations and individuals who make our vital work possible. We cannot do this work alone and graciously accept donations of any size from persons who want to support our vision of a better world for the youngest generation of LGBTQ+ people.

HOW CAN I JOIN IDENTITY?
If you are in our age range (13-24), come down and visit us! If you like Identity, when you come back a second time, we'll have you fill out a membership form. Identity is 100% FREE, so it's as easy as that!
WHERE IS IDENTITY AND HOW DO I GET THERE?
Identity is at 206 State Street in downtown Binghamton, NY. We are only a block from the bus station, so you can come by bus, on foot, or by car!
WHEN IS IDENTITY OPEN?
Identity is open every Monday-Friday from 3-6pm during the school year, and in the Summer from 12-4pm, unless there is a holiday. Check our calendar for more information!
To get started, contact the Volunteer Coordinator today!
Volunteers are an important part of Identity Youth Center. Without Volunteers, we would not be able to provide the level of service that we do. Volunteers contribute their time, resources, knowledge, wisdom, experiences, enthusiasm, and love to Identity’s Youth. LGBTQ youth are at greater risk than their straight peers for drug and alcohol abuse, dropping out of school, and even suicide. Studies show that having a positive adult influence in their lives is a significant factor for LGBTQ youth in developing into healthy adults. The seemingly simple act of spending a few hours a month with a youth can make a significant difference in their lives!
