The Safe Spaces programming offered at 18 Degrees aims to increase resilience, offer emotional and social support, and promote social connectedness. Our programming is designed to build a sense of belonging, encourage and foster social connection, strengthen self-esteem and self-confidence, increase safety through education awareness and risk reduction, and build youth leadership. The Safe Spaces programming provides a safe, inclusive, equitable, accessible, and healthy space for youth and young adults, to live out loud and be their authentic selves.
