A free program for LGBTQ middle-schoolers is coming to Newton.

The Nexus program is open to all LGBTQ and allied youth in sixth through eighth grades. Nexus balances social events with educational programs.

“As you likely know, it is well-documented that youth are exploring their gender identity and sexual orientation at younger ages, and support at this crucial stage of development can help them become healthy, self-confident young people who are more apt to achieve their full potential,” Out MetroWest, which runs the program, wrote in a statement.

In March of 2015 Out MetroWest launched a pilot Nexus program in Framingham. The Framingham program’s success helped Out MetroWest secure funding to start a second pilot program in Newton.

Nexus is scheduled to launch on Feb. 24 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Eliot Church at 474 Centre St. Meetings will take place the fourth Wednesday of every month. (from the Newton Patch)
