The Youth Equality Project for LGBT Youth

The Youth Equality Project (YEP) is a partnership of public and private agencies led by CASA and the Prince George’s County Department of Social Services. YEP’s mission is to provide support and services to foster youth who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered or questioning.

We advocate on their behalf, connect them with resources and host educational and social events to help them further develop life skills and establish and reach their career and personal goals. The Youth Equality Project seeks to make life better for LGBTQ youth in Prince George’s County, Maryland. Learn more about YEP!
