Special Events

We offer a dynamic calendar of social and awareness events throughout the year. Some events are specifically for our youth and are always supervised by trained staff and volunteers who have undergone thorough background checks.  Other events are for donors and the community to support and connect with Time Out Youth.  All Time Out Youth sponsored events are listed on our events calendar and on our Facebook page.

Social Activities

Time Out Youth Center offers a variety of social activities for youth all year long.  Our youth play a major role in the planning and hosting of all social activities. Past activities have included:  field trips to museums, plays and movies, as well as larger events such as Lock-In’s, LGBTQ Summer Camp, and our popular LGBTQ Prom.

  • LGBTQ Prom:  Don’t feel comfortable attending your school sponsored Prom? Want to attend a Prom wearing clothes that validate your gender identity?  Here’s your chance!  Each year over one hundred youth attend this event, complete with a local DJ, Prom photos, delicious food, entertainment and great company. Learn more about this year's prom here.
  • Friday Night Dinner and Fun:  Friday nights are always a lot of fun at Time Out Youth. Every Friday at Time Out Youth there is a family-style dinner followed by fun activities. Friday night activities can include: movie nights, game night, karaoke, talent shows, art studio space and more!  
  • Lock-Ins:  Twice a year Time Out Youth holds overnight lock-ins.  These fun-filled events include movies, karaoke, games, and very little sleep.  Check out our Events Calendar for dates and times.
  • LGBTQ Summer Camp- Camp OUT:  Every summer Time Out Youth hosts CampOUT, a week long day camp filled with fun activities that provide opportunities to make new friends, learn more about our community and opportunities to volunteer in the Charlotte area with other organizations.

Past CampOUT’s have included Field Day with local LGBTQ sports teams, tours of museums and government buildings, volunteering with other local organizations and trips to Carowinds. During this week, Time Out Youth  Centerruns activities from 10am until 6pm.
