Project Teams

The Leadership Team works year-round to coordinate the ins and outs of QTYMP, and weave together the work of the five project teams: Community Connections, Fundraising, Rogue Rainbow, Camp Emerald, and Tender Team. We welcome folks of all experience levels, ages, and interests to get involved with organizing QTYMP! With so much going on, there is room for everyone to jump in, connect with other people, and do real work to support queer and trans youth in our community! Click here to learn more!
