Featured Success Story

14th Annual Iowa Governor's Conference on LGBTQ Youth

April 1, 2019
Des Moines, IA

Hosted by: Iowa Safe Schools

This event gave students and parents the opportunity to connect with school administrators and educators and discuss how to meet the needs of LGBTQ youth regarding underage drinking and substance misuse prevention.
