Make It Better 4 Youth has endeavored to provide safe, open, and fun events and opportunities for LGBTQ identified students and their allies. We need your input going forward. Please take a few minutes to helps us by participating in a short survey. We need to know what we already do for you and what we can do for you going forward.
Three different surveys can be taken from these links: one for parents, one for students, and one for concerned community members and educators.

Join Make it Better for Youth on Friday, April 19th as we “Break the Silence” together. All across the country, youth in schools participate in GLSEN’s Day of Silence, which is a student-lead initiative to bring attention to and end bullying, name calling and other egregious acts against LGBTQ youth. This April, to end Day of Silence, we invite everyone – students, parents, community members – to break the silence together and to lift up LGBTQ voices! Please join us and welcome performers who have crafted a special program as we celebrate together.
Event: Breaking the Silence, Celebrating Our Voices
Featuring performance by the NJ Gay Men’s Chorus, a reading with poet Kailynn Barbour, and more! Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Monmouth County, Lincroft 7pm, $5 suggested donation.
