Safe Contacts in WNY Schools
Are you a young person (or parent or friend) who wants to talk with a teacher, counselor, social worker, or other staff member at your school about sexual orientation but aren’t sure who is “safe” with the information? If so, call or email GLYS. We will try to identify a safe contact for you (without giving up your identity). Contact us at 716.855.0221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
