OurSpace is an initiative of the Netter Center that collaborates with Penn’s LGBT Center to provide a safe and inclusive space for queer youth and allies across the Philadelphia District. Throughout the academic year and summer, the organization hosts events and workshops on college access and career readiness, financial literacy, health, community building, and many other topics to empower and support queer youth and allies. 

In OurSpace’s Sexual Health Education Program (OSHEP), Penn and high school students receive queer-inclusive and comprehensive sexual health education, develop their own curricula, and teach sexual health education to youth within Gender-Sexuality Alliances (GSAs) in Philadelphia. This after-school program educates students about sexual health using a peer-assisted/near-peer learning model.
